I mentioned last week that I am doing a drawing course at The Chelsea College of Art & Design. In spite of the snow I trekked across London (and didn’t fall flat on my face again!).

In last week’s class we used charcoal and chalk. The above image was a practice sketch to understand shadows and how to make objects seem three dimensional. I really look how chalk and charcoal work together!

Here are some  other pieces I drew in my second class:

The final sketch was an exercise to use the objects from the top drawing and create anything we wanted. I made a little puppet type man! Although I didn’t get to finish it in class…

 

Do you like using charcoal to draw? Or do you prefer pencil?
