Here’s what I’m currently working on. This is a commission of a Bethlehem scene (it will be for a Christmas card eventually). I’m working in charcoal, and I’m drawing it on Strathmore Windpower Watercolor paper. I really like the texture of rough watercolor papers for charcoal…it can hold a lot of charcoal, and gives the drawing a unique texture. This is 11×14. I’ve got a long way to go, but this is how it’s looking now.
I’m sorry about the poor quality of my pictures…photographing my art is not something I’m very good at. These were taken after dark, as I work best in the evenings, and the pad of paper I’m using, unfortunately, has a warp to it, so it’s especially hard to get a good picture. You get the idea of how this looks, anyway. Thank you for looking! 🙂
