Charcoal Fabric Study on 11″ x 14″ Paper

Fabric Study watermarked.jpg

I just discovered the joys of drawing fabric. There are so many lessons regarding light and form in this one little drawing. The texture of the fabric and the folds remind me of how each of us are formed and shaped to create a unique person. It is only in darkness that light is able to come forth.

When painting an object, regardless of what it is, I make it a goal  to transform something ordinary into something that alludes to something greater or meaningful. In the end, it should not matter what you paint, but how you paint it!
