Yesterday, while I should have been studying the Ph and log numbers in science, I did a quick sketch of my brother, Nathaniel, in charcoal.
I have been doing allot of charcoal pictures lately, I love how you can make a very alive image so quickly, and I love the darkness of the charcoal which contrasts with the white paper and gives a feeling of light.
I have been working on my first commission drawing of a horse in charcoal,too.
I have also become, lately, interested in Jan Vermeer's work the 17th century painter, especially the beautiful Girl with a Perl Earring. It is so beautiful and so intriguing.
