Charcoal on Strathmore 22″30″                                                                                                   April 2016

The original picture was taken to show my positive nature. The contrast between the dark background and the lighter figure enfasizes the lighter mood thought the grey shadows soften the contrast. The large white area on the right is balanced somewhat by the the complete darkness to the left.

Though the image is a good start to a piece I know it needs to be darkend more in the figure and the lines could have smoother transition between the black and white. The piece does show growth from my first work and I am getting use to using charcoal.
