Day 57

4″ by 4″ charcoal ” The Car Window”

The challenge tonight was to squeeze a large image into a 4″ by 4″ space using charcoal… messy, messy charcoal… without spinning to far out of control. The readability is an issue tonight, the narrative is consequently lost. The composition of the forms are muddied by a busyness of the supporting image. What is working for the piece is a decent balance of values are being used, the relative cleanness around the image, (experimenting with the viability a simple system of tape and cut paper masking to capture a clean boundary) and the variety of marks being used. It’s not a success, but it’s not a failure either.
