Santa Barbara I Madonnari Festival--May 2006

We returned to Santa Barbara for our sixth year with an artwork by an artist who was new to us: Sulamith Wülfing. She was a German artist of the twentieth century (2001-1989) who self-published (with husband Otto Schulze, Jr.) her paintings of angels and fairies as small books, postcards, and calendars. The original artwork we chose has three figures; we chose the one we found most interesting to draw.

This view shows how we skewed the original artwork so that it looks right
when viewed from the base of the square--when viewed from above,
her head looks too large.
