Black and White on Purple

This is another charcoal drawing of some pretty flowers.  But this isn’t just some flowers.  I only used black and white charcoal on this piece.  The paper was a light purple shade and I colored the background to work with the negative space.  I really like how it turned out.  A lot of people don’t realize the paper wasn’t black.

Books and a Flower

 

This is a charcoal drawing of a stack of books and some flowers.  I love the way charcoal drawings come out but I hate that when I work on them the rest of the day I walk around school with black all over my clothes, hands, and some even ends up on my face… embarrassing.
