This is a PRINT of a charcoal drawing I did on antique paper of a nude woman, draped in pearls, with her hand in her hair. The original paper was a beautiful tawny color, and the warm tones come across in the print.

I used a fine white chalk pencil to shade the several strands of pearls that are draped around her.

I named her "Colette" because it means "victory of the people," and there's something noble and thoughtful about her. ("Colette" also means "necklace," which I discovered later.)

The original was commissioned for local Pittsburgh chef, Justin Severino.

Prints are available in three sizes: 8x10, 11x14, and 16x20. All of my prints come on a thick, textured Somerset Velvet paper.
