This is a study in values for Let’s Face It 2017 with Kara Bullock.
I used a model from Pixabay.com, a site with thousands of photographs that are all copyright free. This painting is part of a series of charcoal sketches completed for the online course I am taking this year.
It’s always fun to try new mediums and charcoal is definitely a recent discovery. So much can be done with charcoal including mixing it with other mediums.
I especially like the effect of charcoal on a coloured background such as in the Strathmore Toned Tan Sketchbook.
As the year continues and I follow along in my online class, I am sure there will be more interesting discoveries.
What discoveries have you made lately in whatever is your favourite hobby or whatever your passion might be?
