Loving charcoal, so I thought I would see how a figure would turn out

So far I have enjoyed charcoal, I guess after years of pencil work this is not too dissimilar? At least I feel I have an advantage having had that experience. It is messier! But it blends beautifully. I am still trying to stick with a more free approach to my long standing detailed technique, but it does still pop up, that old familiarity, as you will see in my next post –  Here is WONDER, a nude figure study using willow charcoal sticks and white derwent tinted charcoal.

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

  1. Who was your model?

  2. This one is a photo, but I have now asked my daughter if she could pose for me….. No head though I have been told, and not rude! Her rules, fair enough I think. I have taken some photos of friends in the past, semi naked and implied nude, but I need to ask them if I can use the images if I think their faces will show. For the moment my daughter as a model is far easier, if it happens?
