• A Little Sketch of the Model - original charcoal portrait drawing

    18 days ago - By Hackberry Street Studio

    I absolutely love to work in black and white, especially when drawing from life. I did this drawing using a General's Peel and Sketch with a 'hard' rating which I rarely use, but am actually really pleased with this little sketch. The paper is Strathmore Mixed Media, 8.5 x 5.5". Some of the lines are restated, which I left because otherwise, it's easy to keep making the same mistake, plus leaving the lines lends movement and also tells the viewer the path the artist took in making the piece. Thanks for stopping by!
