Beauty
"Zum Himmel"
Graphite on Smooth Bristol, 8x10"
November 2011

Create beauty for the sake of beauty! From a photograph by Caroline Zenker, ~HarlequinFever of Lioba from her shot "Airborne".

(Zum Himmel = "to the Heavens")

<<edit: I seem to have MORE trouble getting the scanner to pick up the subtle changes of light greys; the whole pic really is shaded, its not some big blank white space in the middle, I swear!>>

Companion piece to "of the Earth" [link] :)

Great work! I love her detailed hair, the sun-dappled background and the way you made the brightest place of her place melt together with, and yet still set apart from the background!
