A Few More Sketches / Renee Mueller Class



Charcoal


Renee Mueller's class has been really interesting.

She suggested doing a few more drawings 
before progressing to the next lesson.


Charcoal

A new technique combining acetone & charcoal is coming up.

  9. Your portraits are so beautiful, dear Chris.
    They look like photos, created by a very sensitive photographer and yet are clearly drawings. An incredibly effective combination. I'm always fascinated how you can make the eyes sparkling, even if you only use one pen and the same applies to the shimmer of the skin.

  10. I really like the lost edge work. Gives it a dimension of space and air.
    I look forward to seeing how the acetone and charcoal. I have enjoyed that myself but used it in still life.

    1. Thank you, Julie - that's why this online class appealed to me.
      I thought to use acetone and charcoal on people and then animals, but never thought to try it in still life. What a great idea that is:)
