BriAngelia Hawes | “Presence/Absence”

This media file is attached to: Drawing

This drawing was created with the prompt "Presence/Absence" in mind- as one part of a series for my Drawing 2 class. I started out going light with a charcoal pencil, drawing the silhouette/contour, (taking extra care to make sure the posture wasn't too rigid) then used conté to draw the surrounding goop. To fill in the shape I used shavings from my conté pencil, using a tortillion to blend everything in and set the picture.
