Crumpled Paper I and II

Today I wanted to do an old exercise we had to do back in high school to make us see the shades of grey on a white piece of paper.

We took a sheet of white paper and crumpled it up and then placed it on the desk in front of us and with graphite pencil had to give it shape and dimension without putting a dark background behind it to give it an outline.

Crumpled Paper I

It was an interesting exercise with only a shadow to ground it and a very slight amount of background shading on one side of the drawing.

Crumpled Paper II

Each of these original 9" x 12" graphite pencil drawings when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $50.00 each.
