Wish I could post what I did yesterday in charcoal, but three-quarter of the way through the drawing my sleeve swiped across the drawing and you guessed it – much was destroyed. AND, if you can believe it – I did it twice more! Okay so charcoal at some point is not recoverable, I discovered the limit was lol. Lesson learned.
Young and Fresh was done while on my December break – it was real hard to resist having a go with this island girl and her fabulous braids. This charcoal drawing (9×6) was done on Strathmore paper using vine charcoal and charcoal pencil, a stump and a kneaded eraser.
The braids were surprisingly easy to do using the pencil and eraser for highlights, but the eyes well they were another thing entirely.
Thank you for checking in ~ have a wonderful weekend.
