Another Sketch: Charcoal on 11″ x 14″ Paper

Charcoal on 11″ x 14″ paper

I enjoy experimenting with charcoal and creating interesting textures. I was not going to use the white chalk, as I think too much use of it can inadvertently cool the painting and destroy the delicateness of a drawing. I decided to go ahead and play with the white chalk anyway because there wasn’t enough contrast and variations in tones since I drew this on a lighter toned paper. I still prefer to draw on a medium-ranged toned paper. I decided to use my imagination for most of the landscape. The tree, however, is based on one I saw in a garden. I admired the strangely angled branches and the moss covering the leaves, as if it had a story to tell.
