Medium: Charcoal

I decided to really try and challenge myself with some difficult angles on difficult subjects. The first is the back of a wolf skull, and the second is the base of my fiddle. I spent one night just getting the sketch of the wolf skull right, and the next day I did all the shading. The fiddle I did in one sitting.

Normally I have a theme for two facing pages, but this time it isn’t so obvious. Unexpected angles of ordinary objects. I think it would be a fun idea to continue. I also defeated three different art fears, which are charcoal observational drawing, the backs of skulls, and my fiddle.

I’m going to be travelling this week, so there should be a batch of sketches from my trip next week. See you then!
