a drawing after a study by Paula Rego

sometimes when i don't know what else to draw i like to make drawings based on other drawings or paintings. I'm not sure what they are, they are definitely referenced but i wouldn't call them studies because i'm not trying to be accurate. it's kind of like a drawing riff. i like how changing their styles and taking them out of their contexts changes their stories. i like to start drawing them and send them in different directions. i guess i kind of think of it more as a drawing collage: take two figures from two different paintings, put them together on a sketchbook page, and see what they do.
