hello! this week i attended a two day portrait charcoal
this was the second time i used charcoal. both times
i really loved the medium but tried to talk myself out of it.
why? because it is not the free, spontaneous type of
creating i often do. still, what i loved won out and
i plan to explore a lot more with charcoal! once again,
i realize that the heart and mind often conflict. i am
trying to go with my heart.
this is the final drawing and the following
are the steps she went through.
all participants were asked to bring their own
reference image. i used the same image for two
drawings, one on 18 x 24 newsprint, one on
the same size drawing paper.
some people chose to try another image.
there is a lot of push and pull with charcoal.
charcoal drawing was definitely my creative
highlight of this week! what was yours?
