The approach you will learn in this free course may be a bit different to your previous experiences with charcoal.
I will introduce you to a method that relies on using the point of sharpened charcoal (more like a pencil) and chalk. This style allows for a great deal of detail and ends up looking a bit more like an etching than a typical charcoal drawing. We will be working on a mid-toned paper to get the most out of our charcoal and chalk.
As with any art style, you can experiment with this approach to your heart’s content. I love seeing the novel ways that students manage to incorporate new techniques into their own work.
