Focus On Legs

For this drawing I focused on the legs of this fairy statue. Even though they seem simplistic, the drawing turned out to be more difficult that I expected.

Nothing crazy tonight, just a portion of the statue. I really enjoy charcoal. There is literally no setup, within seconds I can begin drawing.

Short post today, not much to say I have many other things I want to accomplish today and I’m feeling a little pressed for time.

My hierarchy of painting importance

  1. Drawing
  2. Value
  3. Edges
  4. Composition
  5. Color



How can I improve the drawing

The drawing is further off here than I would have liked. The legs were very deceptive, I expected their simplicity to be easy, and it most definitely was not.
