Iris Study


I like using vine charcoal! After drawing a rough impression it can be wiped off,leaving a ghost image to refine. I used that process about four times, then the last time used a darker, more permanent compressed charcoal. It gets to a place where drawing feels almost like sculpting. That's a fun place to be!
