Subtractive Drawing

This assignment was to set up a still life, lit by candle to create dramatic, chiaroscuro values. I then laid a ground layer of thick charcoal, and crated the image by using different erasers to create the mid and light tones in the composition. I used a better drawing paper this assignment (the paper we get in the foundation package at PNCA sucks!) I really like the witchy vibe that the dramatic lighting and subject matter lends to this piece.
