I worked on the fairy still life again today. Working hard to keep it simple yet true.
This one is taking a lot of time. I’m working hard on keeping each of the value shapes very simple, but I want every shape to be informed totally by the still life. Its true to the statue yet simplified, I guess I could say stylized.
The more I work the Stonehenge paper in this manner, the more it looks like a printed piece. With the charcoal and my carefulness with building it up on the paper it all has a very uniform texture and surface.
