Charcoal, chalk and colored pencil on distressed paper (mostly coffee with a little gouache thrown at it as well).
I had much higher hopes for this when I started out. (One always does.) I like the distressed paper and plan to keep working with that. I think I’m starting to get the hang of working with three colors of chalk–starting to. I’m not sure how much of that I’ll do. I think the next drawing will be a little more monochromatic.
But in the end, it’s just not a real good drawing. Mostly it’s just clumsy and I didn’t really find the contrasts I was envisioning when I started.
Oh well. Time spent drawing is time well spent. I learned a lot–even if it was only lessons in the “never do that again” category.
