Charcoal Drawing Part 2 by Michael Newberry
In Charcoal Drawing Part 1 you will find what are quality materials you need to get the best results.
With this tutorial, I will take you through the drawing stages.
The preparation takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Now that you have prepared the paper you are ready to roll.
The charcoal rub on the paper is neither black nor light, but solidly in the middle of the tonal range. Here I am drawing with General’s charcoal pencil 6b. You will notice that I hold the pencil at the back end. It may not seem important, but you might be amazed at how the mark making becomes more fluid.
