Charcoal Drawing Project
The importance of value to me means a number of things both in the world of art and life. In my drawing, you can see that there are signs of chiaroscuro which is represented through the dark shading and the light skull on the table. This effect represents the different values of the light and dark tones of the drawing. Chiaroscuro charcoal drawings also remind me of light and dark aspects of life. In life we encounter times of darkness and light. Throughout this project I made several mistakes and improvements which reflects perseverance. In life we need to learn how to persevere through our mistakes in order to find light. The constraints that I used to create this piece were needed erasers, fixative spray, light and dark charcoal pencils, vine charcoal, and a charcoal blending tool.
