Charcoal En Plein Air - Griffith Park - 2/27/16 by ChrisOatley Charcoal En Plein Air - Griffith Park - 2/27/16 by ChrisOatley
I spent Saturday afternoon at the park with Angie and Sydney and took a little time for some observational drawing while I was there.

I planned the reversals of positive and negative space from the beginning but second guessed myself half-way through... The result was a slightly overworked drawing but one I like regardless. Thought I'd share it with you.

Hi Chris!
Such a wonderful drawing! Thanks for reminding me to give charcoal a try out in the wild.
BTW: I added your drawing to my new dA group PleinAir-Collective — probably the first dA group dedicated to artists who paint outdoors & from life. I thought it would be a valuable contribution. I hope you don't mind. Feel free to join in.

Beautiful work Chris, I seen this a few days ago but didn't get a chance to add a comment. It must get tough finding the time to relax and draw with how busy your schedule probably is. I love browsing through your work, you've been such a huge inspiration for me the past few years. Words can't explain how thankful I am to have stumbled upon your page so long ago, it's a long story but you've helped me through some pretty bad times. Keep inspiring my friend, and I hope the help that you've givin to so many people comes back to you ten fold. Best of luck to you and God bless!

That's amazing! I really like the feel to it! It looks very calm, but like a dark calm, as if something evil did/will happen.

Haha. Thank you, Tara. I wish I had left it a little more dreamlike. I got a little fussy with the details. It's encouraging to hear you say that.
