Day 294: Drawing a Day

Maybe I’ll call this a Halloween themed drawing? I tried to draw a wood sculpture of a human head in black chalk pastel, and it was pretty hard to interpret the highlights and shadows on a almost-black figure and to put it on paper. I ended up using white chalk pastel to bring out the highlights that I missed earlier when laying out the black. The white areas look grey and not what I wanted it to look like. Anyways, it was a great exercise in reading the the shadows on a dark surface.
