Paleo: Loner, Page 23
Drawing things in heavy shadow or low light is a tricky thing. Thinking about the other guys in the studio (Berger, Dooney, Talbot) they all seem to have a better grasp of it than I do. It's such a beautiful thing when it's done well. I'm noticing in my drawing lately, and it's totally intentional, that I'm trying to incorporate more blacks, although they seem to have a certain characteristically abstract quality. Sometimes it works better than other times.
I hope this piece reflects the dark mood I was going for.
