Charcoal Drawing

Adam – 22” x 19” (55.9 x 48.3 cm) – Charcoal on Paper

I was not able to complete a daily painting today, so here is a recent drawing from my figure drawing class taught by Robert Liberace. In this class I am learning how to draw in the classic academic manner.

This drawing has been completed during 2-1/2 four hour classes, the half class was last week when Rob was not present for the class so I stayed until the lunch break and went home to work on a painting. The materials used are a variety of vine charcoal, compressed charcoal (HB), and some white pastel for the highlights.

This is fantastic. Your drawing skills are right on and what really jumped out at me is the placement of darks and lights on this figure, creating a strong pattern. Love it!

Mary, Thanks for the enthusastic support. The model is a fantastic person with great muscle definitiong that really helps when drawing all the light and shadow patterns.
