This week I tried drawing with charcoal, which is something that I haven't done since my school days. It was so much fun that I'll definitely have another play soon.
As my regular arty followers know... I'm always trying to loosen my work.
I like everything to be as is and strive for perfection... which can be limiting and always makes for an ultimate let down with finished work.
Sometimes, I'm so tight I'm near to snapping, but working with charcoal was like diving into a warm calm pool totally butt naked!
Sorry getting a little carried away there, but it really was a revelation.
I kept laughing as I become increasingly blacker!
Smudges appearing everywhere, but slowly his Highland Coo appeared.
He/She looks quite a character don't you think?
Do you think it's a He or a She.... and what about a name... any ideas? :D
