I used this charcoal drawing as a start for the fabric piece seen here. The fabric had been rusted first and then layered with a charcoal sketch. Whats exciting about charcoal is that it doesnt all wash out so it becomes inherent to the piece.
My lifedrawing group are having a exhibition in the Watergate Kilkenny in March. We meet once a week to draw in the Ormonde College. The lifedrawings I am showing here are all in charcoal, my favourite medium. I love the spontanity of the medium altough it can be difficult to keep clean.
