after Kees Van Dongen Woman with Hat
I had been thinking of putting together a small zine of the ink wash type sketches I'd been doing in my sketchbooks. A selection of the sketches were scanned and a rough layout version of the book assembled. The collection didn't seem to gel though. The toned wash effect was difficult to reproduce in photo-copiable form and there was no overall common theme. Looking at the project again I can see there were some different sets of connecting threads - though not enough of each to justify a zine of their own. This set were copied from tiny black and white thumbnails of the pictures in question from an old 'Introduction to Painting' type art history book.
