Mum in Vine Charcoal Day9


This is a charcoal drawing that I have done from the Mums that are still living! Vine charcoal is rather difficult to work with because it is rather transient, but I love the softness of the medium. This drawing is a small drawing about 11X14. There is only so much working a drawing like this can take before the fibers of the paper are saturated. I am working on a multi-media paper that is of good quality. I won't have a painting today because I am starting a new one and it may take several days.

Great drawing. I like the bird's eye perspective, and the hand that you did a couple days before it, amazing. Hands have always been challenging for me. Thank You for adding me to your blog list.

your drawings are wonderful. Nothing has the beauty and grace of a beautiful sketch.
