Sketchbook Update: Citizen Kane

(Click image to view full-size)

I recently rented Citizen Kane, which I guess makes me an official film buff. It’s considered by many to be the greatest American film of all time, so I had high expectations when my wife and I sat down to watch it. At first we weren’t too impressed, but by the end of the film I could see what all the fuss was about. But I won’t spoil it–you have to rent it for yourself.

Citizen Kane is also full of powerful visuals: excellent lighting, dynamic compositions, and some great faces. I just had to watch it again so I could do some sketching. I don’t often put much black in my artwork, but studying this movie reminded me again of the power of contrast.
