My Vija Celmins Master Study

I mentioned a few months ago that I was doing my Master Study for my Drawing class on Vija Celmins but I never followed up on that post.

So, here are some of my versions of her works from my sketchbook. I did all of them in compressed charcoal and/or charcoal pencil. I'm pretty happy with how they came out. When I met with my instructor she was also quite impressed, as she said none of her students had ever chosen to do Celmins and that I did it wonderfully. (Especially for someone who's never really drawn before, I might add!) My teacher even asked that I photograph my drawings and email them to her so that she can use them as examples in her future classes. Nice!
