Light and Shade -Two Drawings


Light and shade is to drawing what chaos and order are to life. Together they describe form. Carbon and graphite together produce a dappled and grainy effect, as the form of the plant appears to be fused with light. A cross section, in the second drawing, shows the central core. The shadow throws balance into the equation, making a dance of light and dark across the two drawings.
