Dramatic Effect, Face #734

I decided to try out one of my latest Canson Mi-Teints paper acquisitions. I have worked with a dark ground before, so it isn't completely foreign to me to have used this black sheet. A dark ground can be very dramatic, and lend a lot of personality to a piece. I like the boldness of it, as well as the shadowy effects that can be had. This latest piece done on black, while I could have explored it even more, is finished. I do have more of this paper, and there will be more pieces done on dark ground in future posts.

Until next time, take care! And thanks for visiting!
