First try with charcoal…

It’s messy isn’t it?….But when you get past that, it is a lovely medium for drawing with. I spent an hour or so looking at some tutorials and then decided to give it a go myself so here are my first efforts with charcoal. 1. an eye and 2. My quick attempt at the Lincoln statue in Washington DC. It really can get very dark, which is great…..

I do like how dark charcoal can get.
I actually enjoy photographing this beautiful statue in DC.

Playing with waterfalls

So I intend to track my adventures in drawing; be it pen and ink, pencil, watercolour or any other type of mixed media and I’ve been practising a few things to work on my landcape drawings and for a start I’ve been working on waterfalls as you can see below as well as trees.

Please excuse my notes but it helps me remember.
Bit lighter but the technique to draw trees in pen is wonderfully simplistic but the results look pretty good.
