It was executed using various sizes of cardboard in order to portray an aspect of reconstruction as well as a dynamic composition, measuring 5’ x 4.5’. The drawing was produced utilizing multiple mediums like gesso, wax, oil pastels, cardboard, graphite sticks and a sharpie. The combinations of materials were used to create texture and depth.
