His work displays a keen sense of drama and color, with subjects or entire art works depicted in a singular, closely related color . Although almost reaching a point of being monochromatic, Draper’s color style is clearly defined and brings about a dream like feeling. Ballerina is a primary example of Draper’s color use.
