Profile Portrait in Charcoal

 

CLOSE-UP

 

Hello Friends! 

Yesterday I did one of the lessons for Paint Your Heart and Soul. Our instructor was Joan Martin. She showed us how to make liquid charcoal to paint the background of the paper. We rubbed charcoal sticks on sandpaper, put it in a jar and added water for the consistency. Then we painted the paper. I used a hair dryer to dry mine, because there was no sun out by the time I got to it yesterday afternoon.

To draw the portrait, we used willow charcoal and to get the areas of light, we used an eraser and lastly, to make the brightest highlights we used a white Gellyroll pen.

This was a fun one! I still need to do the other lesson of drawing eyes with different expressions.

Have a wonderful day! 😀

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
