Demo in charcoal/putty rubber


Another demo portrait in charcoal. This time, the particular exercise is use of putty rubber as a drawing tool. Pushed for time with this one as it was the second exercise of the morning. A good thing, cause I was able to go hell for leather and pay more attention to what I was trying to get across rather than be concerned that my drawing looked good. The outcome is that, ironically, my drawing looks to me better than usual. A lesson for me here!
I only had twenty minutes to show the idea but proved to be enough.
That was a flurry of demos there in the past few weeks. I think that will do for now and I’ll pass the willow stick to the groups and see what comes of it.
