Drawings - Landscape

The subject matter in Sverdlove's mostly black and white drawings echoes the subjects in her colored works: mountains, landscapes and skyscapes. Some black and white drawings provide a counter to the colored impressionistic watercolors - they show detail and texture. Some of the mountain drawings provide a cubist element. But in the drawings where she employs wash, the drawing become like paintings in black and white.

South Pasadena is divided into two populations: the flatlanders and the hill people. The hill rises abruptly from Monterey Road and descends abruptly from Hanscomb Drive. From Hanscomb, looking south, there are rolling hills in the foreground, and the buildings of Los Angeles rise in the distance, about 8 miles away.
