Doris Charest, AFCA, Flowing moods #2
22" x 15", Graphite on paper, $700.00
This is a second piece in a series called Flowing moods. Each piece with this technique is a surprise. I sprinkle graphite powder on the paper then spray water on it with a hose. The result is a series of marks that are never the same. Within these marks, I then look for an image. In this case, I found a face with a very determined look. I searched for a way to portray that emotion by adding shading, more lines or redefining areas in water soluble graphite or charcoal. The end result was a very moody and this time, scary piece. The mood portrayed makes you look twice.
