My first charcoal landscape drawing that was done for a monthly challenge. The theme was to illustrate dramatic light.
This 8×10 drawing was done with charcoal (HB, B, 3B) and white charcoal on Strathmore paper. As I assess the finished drawing, I learned a big lesson – before applying the charcoal be sure each position of subjects (can’t erase it) I should have stood back to check the sketched scene as a first step. So what caught my eye? The swan should have been about 3/4″ higher into the water as oppose to being in line with the vegetation – would have given the scene better balance.
Have a great weekend, hope to catch up on everyone’s posts later today.
