Bare (Pencil Drawing) by JonoDry
Bare (Pencil Drawing)
Title: "Bare"

Size:  1.9 x 1.3 M

Medium: Pencil on paper

Time: +- 200 hours

The last drawing of the pan series for the foreseeable future. These drawings helped me break out of a shell. I felt bound by the size of my paper and so many other restraints and through this series I felt a sense of freedom that there is really no limit to what you create. breaking down beliefs and limitations that you put on yourself is part of what being an artist is about. I dont think I can express what this series meant to me in words but I hope the drawings can give you a picture...

Enjoy 

Materials used 8B, 9B, 2B, B pencils, kneadable eraser, cotton wool, blending stumps, mono zero eraser, 9B graphite powder.
