I had completely forgotten how to do reductive drawing, I was putting nowhere near enough charcoal down at first. Also I’d forgotten to take any charcoal or a putty rubber so had to borrow some off Marion. Oops
Anyway. Did two quick pencil sketches then this charcoal drawing, which I had to go over a couple of times with more charcoal to get dark enough!
Zoomed in for a final half hour drawing. I was much braver with the charcoal but, because I hadn’t taken any fixative, when I rolled up the drawing to get it home, I created these weird stripes…
