CRAIG NELSON emphasizes logical order while drawing. He compares his drawing process to focusing a photograph. He builds layers of soft lines and swatches of tone then rapidly sharpens his subject with crisp edges and bold darks. You see Craig Nelson translate angles from his source photo to his paper, as he looks for reference points to guide him. He completes a gentle outline of his subject then dusts in a layer of tone. With tissue and fingertips, Craig diffuses blocks of color to avoid locking in detail too early in the drawing. With his value in place, Craig finishes the drawing with dark charcoal lines and deliberate strokes.
