Mulit-Baskets

I recently had a conversation with a client, an admirer of my 'Basket' drawings, and they proposed the idea of a still life made up of multiple, overlapping baskets. I was unsure if that was something that I thought might work, but this week I made some studies to investigate and flesh out the idea. I will present the drawings below, roughly in the order in which they were created. There were a couple missteps that ended in the trash out of frustration, but I eventually got my groove on, found the right brush, got the acrylic paint to the right consistency...  I very much am engaged by the last few drawings. I plan to make more.
