Two Louvre Drawings

Edward G. Nilges, “Head of Artemis”, pencil and pen, Louvre Paris June 2008, Gimp modified with blue tone and white highlights 29 Dec 2010

Edward G. Nilges, “A Visitor to the Louvre”, pencil and pen, Louvre Paris June 2008, Gimp modified with blue tone and white highlights 29 Dec 2010

Again: the only purpose in Gimping is to add a Layer of translucent color, here, blue, and then to use its crude Brush tool with white fadeout. The result simulates drawings I used to have to make back in the 1960s by treating a piece of paper with powdered color and rabbit skin glue.

“…one of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one’s own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.”
