The Climber final

15×22″ charcoal on Rives BFK

The third in my series of shadow drawings.

This was begun at Descanso Gardens in the Rose Garden. I sat on a bench that had a wooden trellis around it for a climbing miniature rose to envelope. I captured what I think is a wonderful shadow, with the light making its way between all of the little leaves.

I was able to balance the abstracted nature of the structure against the organic shapes. I really like this composition.
