These were done at different times of the day so shadows were stronger on the larger drawing. It surely does make a difference when I stand back from my work. When I'm drawing, the values seem just right. However upon stepping back, I can see that they need to be stronger. I did that with the lower image. These are a "tool" I use constantly in my art.

This painting was done on cardboard. It was too large to get it all on my scanner, but the basic painting is here. I used molding paste and a waffle weave bag for texture. Painted over with acrylics and India ink. It's my rendition of the "self" uniting with the "Self" and "Oneness".
