Angel 1

Angel 1
Graphite and Charcoal on Vellum Paper
Dec 2005

This is the first of a series of three angels, inspired by the photographs taken in Rome the semester before. In these works I was really focusing on the play of light and dark and all the mid tones. Also I had recently taken a human figure drawing class and was looking to continue to keep working on that discipline.

Putti said...

I think angels are a beautiful subject...my name Putti is Italian for little angel, although I like to think that I am more special than that! I like this particular angel that you posted, she or he has character in their face. Do you ever draw pictures of cats? I could send you some images.
