I couldn't get my mother-in-law off the phone and was in a dark mood by the time I got to this... ;)

9 x 12 charcoal

Hi Gisela

Dark mood? - then Gothic is the way to go;)

Very nice use of light and dark - bold drawing, makes you stop and look!

Great job

lol....and it looks moody and dramatic like that too, I like this alot.
Some of the most dramatic pictures come from dark moods I think:)

Gee, this turned out so great!
I tried this and just couldn't get a grasp on the values... But you... you... its amazing :)

suitably mysterious, dark and yet romantic

Great darks and lights Gisela.

I expect to see Dracula emerge at any moment. :D

I know exactly what you mean (if it was mine, the walls would have been blood red)

You've done a great job in spite of the mother in law! ;)

Ivy...who knows all too well about depressing m-i-l's!!!!!

Very nice Gisela:)

Now don't be too hard on MIL's - I am one!

Spectacular....I thought about doing this one, but didn't think I'd get it right....you got it right!!!!

Yes! Charcoal was perfect for this one and you definitely captured the 'mood' of an old castle-I think that since you did it so quickly it added to the freshness of your drawing...maybe the dark mood helped too...:evil:

Pretty impressive for 20 minutes.

PS I can see your mother in laws influence. There a dark stormy mood in this one.

Wow! I love that dark atmosphere. Can tell you were in a dark mood :D
How'd you get charcoal to look that good? I thought that was impossible! (Charcoal hates me) :)
