New mothers seem to live in a fog of exhaustion and try to sneak in much-needed sleep when they can find the time. When I saw this tired Mom and her new baby taking a nap in a “cozy” chair, I sensed a feeling of peaceful love.
Sweet Slumber (12×9), a charcoal drawing was done using vine and compressed charcoal, a bit of graphite for some of the hair. My goal was to use carbon for the skin of both Mom and baby, but the carbon pencil was hard and I couldn’t get a nice smooth appearance, I think next time I’ll create a pile of carbon dust and apply with a brush. Because of this 98% of the drawing became charcoal. Tools used were: kneaded eraser, tortilum, stump, and artist brushes.
