“Shaman” 24x18” graphite with colored pencil on paper.

“Shaman” continues my exploration of weaving color through an otherwise black and white or greyscale drawing as I’ve done in “Essence 2”. These drawings require a bit more planning than some of my other drawings as the areas where the color will be applied have to be mapped out so I don’t cover the area with graphite. I’ve also tried to keep the color looking light and transparent, with graphite peeking through here and there, even though some areas of colored pencil application are fairly dense.
