“The world of mysterious silence is evoked in my drawings through structure, space, and qualities of light. The drawings are a complete meditative involvement with nature and are lyrical journeys through the landscape where one is reminded of the majesty, the awe, and the wonder of the natural world.
“By eliminating all references to color the black and white drawings become, in essence, an abstraction of reality and a more vivid interpretation of the scene before me in a simple and direct way without exaggeration or adornment. Working monochromatically by manipulating and emphasizing darks and lights through modifying tonal contrasts and densities requires careful thought but also offers many opportunities to go beyond reality and into my imagination. I render a scene using many grades of graphite pencils, building layer upon layer with delicate strokes and nuances, developing graduated tones to create an ethereal, serene image of simplicity and timelessness.” – AnaMarie Liddell, Charlottesville, VA
