I finally had a little time to go to a figure drawing session. It's such a relaxing and freeing way to spend an evening. I promised myself when I started to make time for life drawing that I would try something different each time. I posted some other sketches I did in ink and I have some in pencil, so this time I thought I'd give charcoal a shot (at least for longer poses. the shorter ones above are still with pencil). I never use charcoal so I'm not sure I was bringing out the best aspects of the medium. But I had fun learning as I went and I may have to use it again next time so get more into the technique of it. Doing something out of your comfort zone is always rewarding in the end even if it is a failure. Now if only I can make some time to paint.
