This piece is actually more like an etching than a drawing. The board is covered with a layer of black ink, which is scratched away to reveal the white…kind of the opposite of drawing because you are working with the lights and highlights rather than the darks and shadows. It was a fun change for me and I thought it turned out pretty well for my first time. Of course, I had a pretty good subject to work with. Michel-angelo’s most famous sculpture lent itself well to this kind of media because of the contrasts of the lights and darks.
