At Art Class lately.....

My first attempt at charcoal - very messy stuff!
The model chose mine as his fave - how cool is that!

A 30 minute sketch using my fave medium - graphite sticks...

Using my new Derwent Sketching pencils, which you blend with water....obviously not the correct paper - it buckled and "pilled" learn something new every day!

I have more, but not yet photographed.

Hope your week was dandy.
See you next time!
