Red Grasp - 50 x 70cm
A drawing of two hands. A white hand offering itself down and a striking red hand reaching up from the deep black background.
The drawing was created using a range of black, white and red pastels, on PastelMat paper. I choose to draw the two elements in their own monochrome palette to emphasise the values, creating dramatic lighting and a deep atmosphere. The resulting image is realistic, yet expressive.
