Day-Night Drawing: Brown University Campus Gate
A Day and Night drawing of a Brown University Campus Gate. I constructed the drawing with the viewer looking upward from under the ironwork gate. My initial quick heavy drawing grabbed the structure in just black line and the white of the paper. I then went back into the drawing, altering the scale, moving sections of the bent iron from place to place, erasing and adding details, adjusting and refining, and pushing the drawing from raw black lines into a symphony of intricate, tonal charcoal mark-making capturing the essence of this complex iron topped gate. The night piece captures the same essence with its dark sky and light pole illuminations.
