A2 Charcoal and Conte drawing of a man resting in a reclined pose.
Im still interested in capturing the energy of the stroke with the marks I make whilst exploring how both the shading and light can bleed into the subject, giving form.
This version was worked up from a quick life drawing sketch - the smudging done with fingers, kitchen towel and a cardboard stick. Drawn with compressed charcoal onto Daler Rowney Fine Grain Heavyweight 200gsm paper.
Still using the self imposed rule of never erasing any marks I make! (just for fun)
