White Conte on Black Charcoal Paper
Gonna go ahead and post this earlier than usual, in case I go out tonight and don’t have time to paint. 🙂
Haven’t done figure drawing in awhile, so this was a challenge. I wanted to try using only white conte on black paper, which proved to be EXTREMELY difficult and made me a little schizo. This technique is particularly annoying because you can’t do any sketching or planning beforehand, since white conte doesn’t mix well with any graphite or black charcoal, but it turned out okay considering. I’m just happy I got to draw all day!
