Fragmentary colossal head of a youth, Metropolitan Museum, L.2016.33.2.
recoloration: Sarah Jenkins (velvethadrian), 2017.
Printed and watercolored in an attempt to illustrate a softer, more nuanced view of polychrome statues in antiquity. At this point, the coloration is only about half finished. He came out a little whiter and dreamier-looking than I’d intended, but since I enjoyed the effect, I decided to scan now and punch up the colors later.
