Title: "Drawing 70"
Artist: Derek Overfield

Above is a small gestural figure drawing on archival paper, executed in preparation for a larger painting on canvas. This work is drawn from life with immediacy and sensitivity. The composition is simple yet expressive.

11 x 14"
pastel paper, acid free 60 lb.

Would look very nice framed, an inexpensive way to have original artwork in your home.

Ready to ship!

"...and around his head the fair goddess set thick a golden cloud, and forth from the man made blaze a gleaming fire... there he stood and shouted... and when they heard the brazen voice of the son of Aeacus the hearts of all were dismayed." - Homer, The Iliad

I am influenced by the classical, and I strive to mimic its monumentality, divinity and quiet brutality in my own work. Through paint and line I seek to capture the light of existence, that "gleaming fire", as well as to portray its gravity. I strive to celebrate the figure, its mysterious power and charisma.
