This charcoal drawing of an Italian model Sarah was created and debuted in Florence, Italy. I drew on a grey piece of Italian-made paper, with charcoal added wherever I wanted something darker than the paper, and white pastel where I needed light. Several people at the exhibit Luce dall'Oscurità remarked that this drawing reminded them of the light of Caravaggio, a famous Italian artist and key player in art history. This is a black and white drawing in charcoal and a wee bit of pastel on a grey Roma-brand drawing paper. Then a touch of color adds some interest, such as the red friendship bracelet and the magenta and purple blanket in pastel.
I wore a dust mask during part of the drawing process because of a couple of days experiencing winter allergies. Charcoal dust (made while sharpening the charcoal to a point) is not healthy to breathe, but normally, the artist does not bother with a mask for this medium. The blue cast in the photo came from a curtain behind the camera.
