From last evening’s Portrait class…I managed to turn out this fairly quick charcoal drawing of Noil, a very good model we’ve had the pleasure of working with.
Vine charcoal is about the simplest drawing media one could dream up, but really deserves a great deal of respect for it’s amazing qualities. It has a value range from a whisper to a roar, yet can be made to disappear with the sweep of a rag.
Noil B. Vine charcoal on Canson MeiTeintes, about 11 x 14″
What a wonderful, classic gaze. I love this piece
Thank you Cindy…it was done prior to a small oil portrait, to work out the kinks. I’m glad you like it.
