[La Luz - Laurie Lipton - charcoal and pencil]
Though I don't roam around on Tumblr like I used to, I have to say that it has shown me some pretty amazing art over the few years I've been on there that I may not have seen until much later. One such artist that has stuck with me all started with the above image. I was so pulled in to it from the subject matter, the inspiration, and the amazing amount of detail that I did an image search right away to find out who the proper artist was. I found that it was New York based artist, Laurie Lipton. The more I saw of her art, the more I fell in love with it. All of these samples were done with pencil and charcoal, and the detail is just exquisite.
