Bridge Walk

graphite 11.25"x8"

I wanted this drawing of a girl crossing a bridge to seem to mean something beyond the obvious subject. I just kept working and reworking the drawing until it finally began to take on a mysterious air. 

You know what's so great about drawing blond hair in the sunlight? The shadows have an inky blackness that contrasts so beautifully with the highlighted hair, and it's heavenly to try and capture it with a soft 8B drawing pencil.
