Very Laid Back

A3: Charcoal & wash on paper

Here’s a bit of full-on foreshortening to kick off the New Year!

After a long break of no life drawing since summer I treated myself to four full days of  intensive untutored practice last week, so I feel like I’m just about back in gear.  And what an excellent way to spend that time between Boxing Day and New Year’s eve!

  1. Wandering through wordpress blogs on the tag “charcoal” I found this drawing. I really like it. i’ve been trying to hone my skills in life drawing and I’d have been proud to have drawn this for sure. Congratulations.

  2. Beautiful! Can I ask you, are you just adding water to the drawing for the wash or are you using ink? Also I was wondering if you are using watercolor paper or just regular newsprint or cartridge. Thanks for sharing your beautiful drawings 🙂

    • Sandrine, thank you. Yes I do add water and also ink. I like to play around with various media with charcoal as a base. I also use different kinds of paper but my preference is smooth hot pressed paper.
      I appreciate your questions and kind comments.
