Untitled (Ocean)

Vija Celmins (American (born Latvia), born 1938)
In this highly finished drawing, Celmins used graphite pencils on paper primed with a thin white acrylic ground. The even strokes and dense tonal gradations produce a sheen in the darkest areas that can be seen when viewing the drawing from below.
