Drawing Faces: Introducing Chalk and Compressed Charcoal

By Sheila Ceccarelli 

At our experimental drawing class this week, we used our re-charged New Year energy to create a pile of portrait studies and experiment with working quickly and rhythmically with chalk and compressed charcoal.

We expanded on Look Up Not Down Portraits, A School Full of Characters and Finger Palette Portraits and spent the hour and a 1/4 concentrating on drawing and looking at the person in front of us.

This was a lovely session and there was a sense of happiness and excitement in the room, echoed in the final drawings.
