Negative/Positive Drawing Exercise: Charlie Chaplin Look-A-Like

8 1/2  x 11 inches
 The photo was a Weekend Drawing Event Photo on Wet Canvas. I chose it  in order to to do an exercise in negative/positive space drawing. How much more perfect is a Charlie Chaplin look-a-like, of course dressed in black and white. I chose the diagonal stroke for the negative areas because I wanted them to function as a uniform dark. Any variation of the stroke in the dark areas would have only complicated and confused the dark areas.
     I also chose this photo because of the angles in Charlies pose which provide movement, energy and character.  THE CHALLENGE AND THE ADVENTURE OF DRAWING ADDS MYSTERY TO LIFE, A BLANK PIECE OF PAPER IS SCULPTED BY OUR PENCIL STROKES.
