• Exhausted - original charcoal figurative drawing of a young woman

    One year ago - By Hackberry Street Studio

    This young woman was clearly so tired as she waited for the bus. I asked her if I could snap a picture for a drawing - and she was agreeable. It's always great when someone agrees to pose or lets me take a photo. This piece is on toned paper, using vine charcoal - and although the support looks tan, it's really grey - surely my photo skills aren't that lacking! It's gotta be the camera. I used some scribbles of white for the background and for highlights. This drawing is 12 x 9" and I loved making it - thanks for stopping by!
