"Eclectic Still Life" - NFS

"Eclectic Still Life"
24"x18" charcoal on paper

In addition to the painting class I am taking with Tina Ingraham, I'm also studying drawing with her. This drawing is from our third session. I started by covering the paper with charcoal and then creating the drawing by wiping it off with a rag, a chamois, my finger, and a kneaded eraser. And then adding some back... and taking some off, etc. I made several passes lightening each time. I'm pleased with the results, but found it tough going in the early stages.
