A Portrait Sketch from the Past

14" x 11" Charcoal and "White Charcoal" Gray Paper
This is charcoal sketch from a live drawing session done a number of years ago. She's the same Native American woman who modeled for this sketch. You might think that I'd get tired of charcoal and "charcoal white" on gray paper, but it's an excellent way to quickly and accurately sketch various faces, poses, angles and lighting situations. Those last four things are what really keep me drawing - not necessarily any particular medium. I'll never tire of drawing people's faces. Besides, you never stop learning from practice.

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