A New Series of Drapery Paintings

5th September 2017


I am creating a series of paintings with the help of my wife Fanny (Marian Fannon Christian) who has a beautiful collection of scarves and a flair for tying them in a creative way. She has also created earrings to compliment the cloth in the turbans. I love painting them because I love painting drapery! Here are the first five paintings finished so far. It is a natural progression for me to go from the Mannequin Series  to The Fanny Sleeping Series which was very elaborate, to the simplicity and elegance of a head wearing a beautiful turban.
