Graphite closeup by jane-beata Graphite closeup by jane-beata
It's been a long time since I've published a simple graphite drawing, hasn't it (: Anyhow, I've prepared a 5 new graphite pieces for my Saturday's exhibition, this is a closeup of the first one.

Comments & feedback MUCH appreciated!

There is life amid the shadows.

Your talent for capturing faces and expression is in full effect here. The mix of tonal drawing and stylistic line drawing in this is very eye-catching. I enjoyed how you made the stylistic grasses feel substantial by adding their shadows falling across the model's body. Also the diagonal slanting texure in the shadows provides a more dynamic feel to the static and serene pose. As with the painted version of this composition, the positive and negative spaces are varied and interesting to view.

The biggest critique I have with this is more of a personal preference and is not with the drawing but with the presentation. I want to see more of this drawing, and I always prefer to view the art at 90 degrees from the picture plane (unless it has 3D elements such as impasto which may show up better from a different angle.) I'm not entirely sure how this 'close up' version serves the art, as it does not seem to be all that close up, instead merely a different viewing angle.

As always, I look forward to each new piece of yours. Thank you for letting me comment on your art; I hope it's been helpful in some way. :thumbsup::)

Beautiful drawing and shading! Some of the features seem a little more graphic than necessary, but overall a great composition. I especially like the contrast of shaded and unshaded elements. I also like the diagonal hatching in the background, it adds a level of movement to the piece.

Sorry, I didn't have time to write the minimum words so I had to copy and paste a repeat.

Anyway... this looks great! Love the shading and highlights :aww:

I have been more into artisan crafts lately, so i don't think i will do more than just a few scribbles every now and then.
