A certain mystery starting to show itself about this young woman as the drawing came into being . . . I wondered what she was staring at or thinking – whatever it was she seemed satisfied.
Mystic, a charcoal drawing (7×5) was to be a quick piece to practice eyes, lips and mouth that I worked on in December, 2014. It became apparent that someone special revealed herself. Material used was Strathmore paper using vine charcoal, compressed and a kneaded eraser. Once the drawing was done, I signed it and sprayed the piece with a fixative to seal the charcoal.
I was going to post the drawing earlier, but today as I looked at her I decided to revisit her one last time, and something exciting started to happen. A little magic came about when I swept several strokes of white and cream soft pastel down the surface of the drawing to give a bit of mystery to this young lady. And, Mystic was born.
