Charcoal Drawing – 5/9/14

05-09-2014 drawingHere is my first real attempt at drawing with charcoal. I’ve done similar work in the past, but always with graphite, so this was a new experience for me. I found it was difficult to obtain the same level of detail, but this was also nice because I was not going for photorealism. I quickly realized that I have a habit of laying my hand on the paper as I work, but with charcoal this is a big no-no because it smudges so easy.
