Back to Charcoal for a Week

12" x 9" Charcoal on Paper
The lighting in the studio at last Thursday's portrait session illuminated the model's face, leaving the shadows and background dark. Passing over the graphite pencil, I returned to charcoal for this session. Charcoal's darker value and quicker application allowed me to address the dark areas better than graphite could for this drawing. 

For more about drawing sessions, go to "Labels" on the side bar and click on "sketching" or "drawing."
