Day 63 by secrets-of-the-pen Day 63 by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 63 of my 366 daily art project! A lot more are on the way! Please read all about my project and charity below and in my journal.

This was SO fun! I've never done a black and white landscape before. :D

Special thanks to *AshenSorrow for the beautiful stock background: [link]

>>Created with charcoal and highlighted with chalk on 2.5x3.5 ACEO bristol vellum card. About 1.5 hours.

:bulletred: See all my ACEO's in my gallery here: [link]





-----------------

♥ For every day of 2012, I will be drawing one ACEO sketch card. Every single one will be for sale - ALL proceeds to be donated to charity at the end of 2012.

My charity of choice is a local foundation called Alternatives to Violence, who is currently raising money to build a safehouse. This safehouse will provide a secure shelter to men, women and children who have recently escaped physical and sexual abuse.

With the safehouse, 312 individuals every year will receive crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning, advocacy and shelter.

Together, through art, we can help make a difference.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
If you love this piece and the safehouse project, you can see the card to purchase at Etsy for $8 + shipping:[link]

Absolutely stunning. I love the soft fog and shapes contrasted with the sharp trees.

Doing a landscape in black and white is really hard. Great job!
