Sketchbook: Moonlight

This week we sketched in an exhibit about Texas Art that just opened this week. I chose a lithograph by Alexander Hogue called Moonlight which was printed in 1954.Our instructor brought some black construction paper and white pencils so that we could experiment with working with negative space. I decided after seeing this lithograph that Moonlight was the perfect artwork to draw. Some of you may recognize the church in this drawing as the Ranchos De Taos which has drawn many artists and photographers working in the Southwest.
