Effervescence - Original Charcoal Drawing

Effervescence describes a feeling of energy and joy I had in Milano when I saw the sun hitting the water of a public fountain in that city in Italy. I chose to do this drawing in charcoal because I find black and white so touchable, meaning that I WANT to reach out to touch it. As the artist, I love the feel of charcoal in my hand and making a mark on the paper. Also, I wanted to explore with this medium a bit more and try a technique to give the splatter sensation that sprouting water does. It is easy to get lost in a moment filled with water and light.

Bubbly fountains bring calm and joy and in the summer, a refreshing mist of cool air. The sun is backlighting the water and has a dazzling effect. Thank you for viewing my art.
