Charcoal reversal project

Here is the final reversal. It took me many hours and long nights to work on it.

I choose Edward Weston's Rose Roseland because I liked the pretty hairdo just like Princess Leia from Star Wars. The project was to make an illusion of a photograph by laying down the entire paper of black charcoal then lifting it out the shapes and light with a kneaded eraser. It was amazing how when one area was off the whole photo is off so laying out the porportion and shapes was the most important thing. Also the magic word SQUINT!
