I came up with the idea for this still life several years ago, as a way to help improve my observation and rendering skills. I finally decided it was time to draw it, and I am glad I did.

Charcoal and graphite on smooth bristol paper, 16.5″×13.3″, 2012.

    This is a great charcoal still life, and especially for we science teachers : )
    Today I was bewildered by the answers I got to this question: “List 3 countries where Tundra is likely to be found”. I got answers like “Africa, London, and Texas” …. sheesh! I had to teach Juniors in high school the difference between a country, a city, and a continent. Can we borrow your globe?!?

  • Well, I am a scientist by training!
    Basic geography for high school? Geez. It’s so sad.
