If one can't visit the Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum is the next best place to be. I dont always have time to sit & sketch. With so many wonderful artwork around every bend, it's pretty easy to full up my sketchbook.

On this tone paper, I use a kneaded eraser as my drawing tool. The eraser allows me to create an effect of subtle luminosity. Just the right tool for subtle play of light & dark. For this study, less is definitely more. Come back for my next post to see another approach I use to create light & dark forms.
