Capture the mood of the model and the structures below the skin. Learn how to fully utilise this simple yet incredibly versatile medium of charcoal. Fiona will demonstrate rapid, dynamic mark-making techniques that are fluid and painterly which will help you to be more intuitive in your drawing. You will be shown how to build a variety of tones from white to vibrant blacks using layering methods, different grades and sizes of charcoal and a variety of erasers.
