Children: graphite illustrations


 

With this series I re-experience the discipline that drawing commands, because portraits are the perfect challenge for that. When drawing with graphite/pencil, the eraser is used just as much because negative spaces are as important in composition as the subjects themselves.

“Lucas At The Museum” was part of the juried exhibition ‘Growing Up and Looking Back – Reflecting on Childhood, Parenting, and Home’ at Gallery RFD in Swainsboro, Georgia 2007. “Adam” won a merit award at VAST’s 41st Annual Exhibition, Denton, Texas 2007
