Drawing in the Dark

Attempting a drawing in the dark tonight, I wanted to see if I could meld my portrait with the darkness.

It was a bit difficult to cut off most of the light so the the drawing had enough light on it but my face only received a small bit of light. I’m not sure that I achieved what I was after but it was interesting dealing with the very subtle values.

The Setup


I taped a black piece of foamcore over the light I used and was able to darken everything to hardly any light.
