In Silence, Scan 5

In the final scan, the cliff’s become more cliff-like, taken a step back into the shadows and assumed a supportive role, with a sloping lawn appearing at the top, between the building’s foundations. A rugged natural setting with another green tucked among the perhaps-ruins below, and immaculate, carefully tended buildings and grounds above- Those contrasts make for an interesting place, one I’ve enjoyed spending some time exploring.

Materials, tools: Strathmore Bristol Board; General charcoal pencils, Grades 6B and HB; Dixon Ticonderoga Graphite pencils, Numbers 1-4; kneaded erasers; Q-Tips.
