My tutor was quite taken with this charcoal study that was done during the first assignment of my current course. He felt the triangle of white light between the objects created a sparkle and gave dynamism to the image as a whole. I love working with charcoal and don’t do it nearly enough.
During the summer, it was great to get outside and do some drawings of objects I found in the garden. The light was particularly bright on the day that I did this one.
