quick charcoal sketch

A quick charcoal sketch done as a demo, A4

I've been working on a secret project and postcards that can't be shown until they are received - so I thought I'd include this quick charcoal sketch, done as a demo in class, from a photograph a student had taken.

It's of Bradgate Park - where Lady Jane Grey, she of the 9 days Queen fame lived, before she was beheaded.

Done to show the lovely painterly looseness  of willow charcoal and the speed it's possible to work with it - lovely lovely stuff, even if messy :>)
