Self Portrait in Skip’s Attic

Self Portrait of Jason Pelish using charcoal and white pencil on rosin paper

This is one of a series of drawings done on rosin paper, done with charcoal and white pencil. Jason leveraged a computer display projector and Photoshop to project the outlines of the design on paper. After the initial outlines were done in #2 pencil the charcoal was used to fill in the dark and light values, referencing the initial digital image photo visually.
