This is a charcoal drawing of a drapery study. The artwork was drawn in 1995 with vine charcoal in my first art class. Attention to detail, in both line work and shading was meticulously planned out with each stroke. Subtle variations in the weight of the line, shades of charcoal, and white of the paper help to create the illusion of depth in the drawing. A kneaded eraser was used to carve out white highlight areas. The drapery study was good practice for proportion, and helped me get used to working with charcoal in 8th grade.
