A Dancing Angel
9" x 11"
For my 8th concentration, the medium I used for A Dancing Angel was pencil.
Because the face is almost completely white, the darkness of the background balances it out. The different values of the flower are repeated in the folds of the statue’s hair. For this piece, I used a 2B, 4B, 6B, and a 7B. I used the 7B for the background to make it dark. To lift the dark spots in the hair, I used a kneaded eraser. I also used the kneaded eraser to give a worn and weathered look to the statue. I overall really enjoyed drawing this statue because of the unique proportions of the face and the extreme lighting.
