Young Woman with Braid

Charcoal Pencil and "Charcoal White" on Toned Paper
This is a recent sketch from one of this month's weekly drawing sessions in Springville. Using "charcoal white" on "toned tan" drawing paper gives the drawing a more cold appearance than I like, but I'm generally happy with how the sketch turned out. Once the toned tan paper is used up I'll probably switch to a darker paper more suited to this kind of lighting. I love drawing from the shadow side of the model!
