No. 19 is a white tail deer skull that I found on a trail while hiking.
I love to draw skulls because the architecture and because of the challenges in rendering the wonderful nuances of the light and dark areas.
This is drawing took about 40 hours to complete and is drawn with charcoal and white pastel.
It's double matted using archival materials and is wired for immediate hanging and I frame drawings with plexiglass to protect from breaking.

Whether working in oils or in charcoal, Elizabeth is interested primarily in how light moves and wraps around objects.
