Shadow Play I
Pencil on Illustration Board 20" x 40"
This work might seem a little different for me but its not really, its is in line with a series I have been working on called Earth Currents an homage to abstract space, nature and celebrating the insignificant. I found this root while taking walk and I knew I had to study and draw it. My concentration was on the shadow and the long negative space. The root itself was interesting and complex but laying the light in from an extreme angle made the piece work. When I do a major drawing like my current wip Drawing of Clint it can become so involved and so time consuming that I have to step back and do a non-narrative study of something that just fascinates me.
Thanks for looking
