I was going for a tenebrist feel for this drawing. The word comes from the Italian tenebroso which means dark, gloomy, and mysterious. A lot of times we think love has to be all warm and fuzzy…rainbows and puppies. But Nazareth, The Everly Brothers, and Roy Orbison were right…love hurts.
I was trying to show the surfaces of the gem as well as make the heart look cracked and broken.
And I end up with Cubism lol.
I’ve never been much of a Cubism fan and I sure didn’t expect it, but I like how it’s turning out.
