furrow


furrow
conté + charcoal in cartridge paper, 18x24"

This drawing was somewhat based on the sketch from my previous post. i haven't touched traditional media in a while, so this was a nice change of pace (except for inhaling all that charcoal dust and fixative spray. And i didn't know that fixative spray would make my paper all curly...). i was originally going to do this sort of thing using graphite powder on watercolour paper. It probably would've had a better, more refined quality to it. However, i didn't want to buy a massive jar of graphite powder and was too lazy to make it myself... >.>;;;
