Happy New Years! It’s amazing how fast time goes by ~ before you know we are right at it again. It’s that time of year when I concentrate on drawings, both graphite and charcoal, as a way to get back to fundamentals. For graphite it’s more for focus/perspective and details, and with charcoal well I’m able to get a little more loose with my strokes. But with both mediums for me it’s all about the contrasts of lights/darks – I love this.
Hope you don’t mind, but we’ll be without color for a while. Here is my latest ~ click onto the image for a larger view.
The Book, Strathmore Bristol Vellum (8×8) – both graphite and charcoal. I wanted the main focal point to come forward a bit, so the book and fabric was done with graphite (reflective qualities) and the background to stay back there was done with charcoal (a flat, but decorative appearance). This was a great still life for working the light and fabric.
