Snow on Chittenden Hill, charcoal on paper, copyright 2011, Jan Blencowe

Very, very honored to tell you that my charcoal drawing Snow on Chittenden Hill was selected for inclusion in North Light's new book Strokes of Genius 5: Composition, which comes out September 2013.

The book features drawing in various dry drawing media that exemplify excellence in composition.

This particular piece captures the October snowstorm we had last year. This scene is about a mile from my home.

What a great way to go off on my painting trip to Maine, knowing my drawing was selected to be part of this wonderful book!

I like this work a lot. And it's charcoal? That's intriguing. I thought it was oil but these things are so hard to tell on an internet image where you lose the texture.
