Good to be back drawing again – here is the first of 2015 Thursdays drawings.
Colette (9×6) was drawn on Strathmoore paper using charcoal (soft brick, vine and pencil) and shaped with a stump and kneaded eraser. The drawing was based on a colored photo and was a perfect reference to use for this charcoal sketch.
I really liked how the brick handled the fabric of her clothes, once the charcoal was laid down I did very little to influence the look. The flower attachment to her hat came about by keeping the area clear of charcoal and then using my fingers and the kneaded eraser to shape.
Thanks for checking in ~
