Beauty and Art sort of "go together" in a way that they have no real definition.
It's true- Beauty is in the eye if the beholder. No matter how "dark" a piece may seem, as long as someone sees beauty in it, it could still be classified as dark "art".
This piece is inspired by Ms. Catherine Zeta Jones (a remarkable beauty). I drew it during what spare time I had when I was working in Cambodia.
The background is made up of quite several layers of charcoal (fixative is applied layer after layer).
*** This piece will be delivered rolled in a "G-Type tube". I've been using this "high-quality" tube for years to pack and protect my artworks during transportation. So far, since I've sold original artworks internationally (United States, United Kingdom and Australia) I've never encountered a problem using this form of packaging. ***
