The drawing of “Shadow”  is a play on light and emotion. Emerging from the darkness is a soft loving face with soulful eyes. Staring up with a look of longing and love, “Shadow” conveys the look of adoration recognized by every dog-lover.

Stylistically, this drawing uses negative space to create a strong visual impact. The black paper has a powerful presence that makes the highlights all the more striking. Traces of pink and warm browns were built up with soft subtle layers of colored pencil strokes. The end result is a visually compelling drawing with the rich depth of absolute black and the welcoming warmth of a beloved canine face.
