Sculptural Drawings

These “Sculptural Drawings” begin as conventional pencil or conte drawings on heavy, off-white paper. The artist then mounts the torn-edge drawing on a 1/8” wooden backing and rusticates the edges. This mounted drawing now becomes a component in a multi-layered composition (like a three-dimensional collage, about an inch deep) in which Wilson layers cast plaster surfaces, components, and other materials above and below the main drawing. See "Learn more about Layered Watercolors" for an in depth step-by-step illustrated explanation.
