“Drawing is like making an expressive gesture with the advantage of permanence” by Henri Matisse
Not my usual subject, but when I saw a photograph online at pmp (paint-my-photograph) I was intrigued by the way the woman’s hair flowed down her back. The original photograph was in color, she was facing a dark green/brownish wall and holding flowers, but in my mind I saw something totally different ~
Daybreak, a charcoal drawing (9×6) was done on Strathmore Bristol smooth paper. For me it was all about her hair – I could see her glancing out a window with the drapes pulled back. So I went with the theme, letting the light control the soft feel of the atmosphere while her dark hair took center stage. I don’t draw the body very often, but this one spoke to me and I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thank you for visiting ~
