Sketch of Shelley - original charcoal portrait drawing
I did this little sketch on 10 x 8" Strathmore 403 paper. I'll consider it finished, especially since the model loved it and will probably buy it. Although this was mostly vine charcoal, I had forgotten how nice it is to have nice sharp charcoal pencils - in this case General's Primo and the Ritmo brand pencil I used many years ago. I wasn't able to find Ritmo for such a long time, but it's back and as good as ever. But I think my favorite now is the Primo - really deep blacks and a smooth application - very nice charcoal pencil. Thanks so much for visiting!
