Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks

Called the mother of the civil rights movement Rosa Parks gave most of her life in service to a cause greater than herself.

I picked this photograph of her to draw from because it depicted her courage and bravery while at the same time showing her compassion.

Thank you Rosa Parks for being a hero to us all.

Session 7

You can call this “pick and shovel” work. Lots of filling in with value but no subtlety.

Session 6

The challenge for Rosa Parks dress is trying to instill form into a very dark area with subtle variations.

The basic values are set for Rosa Parks face which makes the bulk of this drawing done.
