Not much to say about today’s session, more of the same just moving forward slowly.
I’m using more tools for this drawing than I have for may of my previous drawings. The same charcoal pencils, conte 1710. But I’m doing a lot of smudging and blending with paper towels, brushes and Q-tips.
I find that I can vary the texture with different ways of blending, or not blending at all. Even though I’m blending a lot, applying the charcoal in a direction that accentuates the curvature of the form is still noticeable.
