Charooal Sketch

18" x 24" charcoal on newsprint.

I've spent the afternoon playing with charcoal using a reference photo from Wet Canvas Figure Forum Workshop 4. My measurements are way off but doing sketches like this does help to become more familiar with the figure in the photo. The goal is to do an hour timed drawing using charcoal, trying to get correct measurements and tonal quality. Nervous about doing it right?? You bet, but I am thoroughly enjoying myself.
