I’ve added hue to this drawing of Persephone from a series related to sculpture in architecture.  Colors and shadows are intensified to provide a greater sense of depth.

I’ve  been reworking the color on some of my drawings   Again this is the sculpture of Persephone over the doorway of McNeal Hall and part of a series depicting her in the different seasons.  Here, the leaves of the vine are drying, changing color, and falling away in the wind.
