I worked on this in charcoal, but more than focusing on technique, my main focus was to pull the energy and emotion out of the girl’s face and put it down on paper. CHILD (HAIQAL). ANDREJ BLAZON Charcoal and pastel pencils on distressed smooth gray cardstock / 7" × 91⁄2" (18cm × 24cm) In drawing, physical depth reveals space; depth of emotion reveals the soul. This look into the soul is especially interesting in a child. Similar to a mirror that doubles distances, a child’s eyes, in their lack of artifice, have the ability to reflect emotions transgenerationally.

DIMITRINA STAMBOLDJIEV KUTRIANSKY Graphite on paper / 51⁄2" × 13" (14cm × 33cm) Although nature is intriguing and complex, we remain indifferent, unaffected by its presence.

ONA KINGDON Pen and ink with a limited watercolor wash on bristol board / 61⁄2 " × 14" (17cm × 36cm) There are so many sights, sounds and smells to take in when you are young. Sometimes you just need to stop a while and “paws” for thought. The sense of spatial depth was created by enhancing contrasts in value and emphasizing hard or lost edges. Both of these techniques also lend emotional depth to the drawing. The darker lost-edge areas add a degree of mystery and wonder. The lighter hard edges, along with a watercolor wash on the eyes, suggest the feeling of warm sunshine and evoke a sense of safety and comfort.
