New charcoal drawing

Posted in Blog by with Comments Off on New charcoal drawing

Yesterday I finished my magnolia blossom painting.

After finishing it, I immediatly started a new project. This time in charcoal, one of my favorite mediums, although it is way more time consuming than watercolour is. But there is just something about the way that it seems such a primitive medium to work with. I mainly use the natural sticks, not the compressed onces, and it takes a few tries before I find the right kind of pressure I can use on the stick, without braking it. lol This time it will be a drawing of a snow leopard cub. For some reason felines seem to be one of my favorite subjects when I’m working in charcoal… ^^’

Here’s a photo of the rough sketch. I’ll try to update it regularly!
