Diana For Karin


white & black charcoal pencil on gray Canson paper

This challenge from Karin Jurick's website Different Strokes From Different Folks, was to paint or draw from a photo of the statue "A Companion of Diana". I chose to use a gray colored paper which became the middle value for the drawing and white and black charcoal pencils for the highlights and dark areas. This allowed me to draw and do a value study in a different way.

Wow, very nicely done! I like that you chose to do a black white charcoal rendition. It defines the surface values of the marble in regards to the light and shadows well!
