Window Light

"Window Light", 2009
Prismacolor colored pencil on vellum, 7 1/2" x 5"

This was the first time I've used vellum as a support, and I was able to draw on both sides of the paper. My intent was to give the piece a greater depth. When using the vellum again, I'll try a value drawing on the back (grays, light to dark) and the local colors on the front.
This colored pencil piece was displayed in a juried exhibit. Each work was to be of the town library, and I chose to draw this statue in an east window in a stairwell.
