Last Thursday at Avon Valley Artists the subject was drawing. Any subject was allowed and any drawing medium but no painting. I wasn't able to stay for the full session due to additional grand parenting duties (at short notice) so decided to try one of my previous Indian studies of a Hopi man. This would also enable me to draw upon current Bath portrait studies at the City of Bath college. I decided to use mainly charcoal with some initial pencil work.
Hopi Indian Man
A1 Cartridge paper 200gm - Willow charcoal and charcoal Pencil.
Charcoal is messy but is great for a loose `go for it' type of approach. I fixed the charcoal with hairspray. Comments welcome.
