Spotlight original charcoal drawing

     Energized is how I feel when skies go dramatic.  While hiking with my brother Steve in Vernazza, one of the villages of Le Cinque Terra, Italy, the wind picked up and clouds rolled in.  It was wonderful as we dined near the top of a seaside cliff.  This was our view at one point as the sun broke through the clouds to create a spotlight over the sea.  Le Cinque Terre is known for its rugged coastlines.  The cliffs stayed in shadow, but still make a dark and interesting shaped background to the dramatic skies.

     Monochromatic images tend to move me emotionally in a very different and profound way than those with color.  On this charcoal drawing of a seascape in Italy, I worked to recreate the billowing clouds around this insistent sun. 

The paper I used is a thick paper made in Valleriana, Tuscany, Italy.

    I generally start by working out the design of the dark shapes vs. the light ones, or Notan Design
    BOTH drawings [Splash and Spotlight] are on the same size paper.  You may receive a savings for buying both of the drawings at the same time.  Each is framed and matted and ready to hang.


BUY ONE for $1600, BOTH for $3000.
