charcoal sketch of the beach
Charcoal sketch of the beach, evening, approaching rain. Vivien Blackburn
A charcoal sketch in the beach series - I think I may do a large, more finished one of this for an upcoming show. I really do like charcoal and the wide variety of marks you can get - smudgy sfumato to hard crisp lines. It's the medium I'd always choose for a large drawing, often with ink applied with bamboo pen and paintbrush to push the darkest darks.
What is your favoured drawing medium?
I managed to do a little more to the canvasses today before having to go out but the light went before I could take any photographs. I'll update those during the week.
