Creating a charcoal piece is all about layering and blending for me. As I draw, I blend, I step away, add another layer, and blend some more. And on and on it goes.
One of the things I do to step back and evaluate my work during this process is to take pictures of it on my phone. It gives me a different perspective and allows me to take it in entirely. It also ends up being a fun way to look back and see how the piece evolved.
This time I made a lil time-lapse video of the evolution of my charcoal piece, “Campfire Stories'.‘
