Conte on 216gsm black acid free paper 30 x 30cm

Description

Working from the Renaissance sketches of Michelangelo, I used white conte & pastel to highlight the musculature on a beautiful heavy weight black paper. During the process of sketching I realised an astronauts helmet could look right on this 16th century figure... so I acted on my instincts and am pleased with the result. It makes me smile!
