Okay, I can see it. I am improving! I also have fallen in love with vine charcoal and will be just as happy if I never have to use a pencil the rest of my life!
I love how forgiving the vine charcoal is, how I can smudge it and "move it around" as Teach says. Compressed charcoal is still very tough for me. Once on paper, it is so THERE.
Next week is still life with a huge assortment of objects. I had fun practicing with a couple of them.
I am already pondering what class I can take Monday/Wednesday morning next semester!
