"Nightwatch" - Original Charcoal Drawing of Nude Woman

This charcoal drawing of an Italian model Sarah was created and debuted in Florence, Italy. Several people at the exhibit Luce dall'oscurità remarked that this drawing reminded them of the light of Caravaggio, a famous Italian artist and key player in art history. This is a black and white drawing in charcoal and a wee bit of pastel on a grey Roma-brand drawing paper. Then a touch of color adds some interest, such as the red friendship bracelet and the magenta and purple blanket.
[masked drawing with charcoal dust]

Kelly wore a dust mask during part of the drawing process because of a couple of days experiencing winter allergies. Charcoal dust (made while sharpening the charcoal to a point) is not healthy to breathe, but normally, the artist does not bother with a mask for this medium. The blue cast came from a curtain behind the camera.
