"Peter", Austin Power, Oil on Paper, 12"x9", 2008

Hi Everyone,

This is the first drawing of many I am doing on black paper for pastels. It's a study of my friend Peter. My most recent painting has been dealing with the figure as volume shown through light on a dark ground. The works on paper you'll be seeing over the next couple of days highlight some of the ways I've been working with highlight and hollowness to create or destroy volume. Today, with Peter, we are creating volume with a sense of emptiness.

I hope you enjoyed and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow,

Austin Power
