Nice contrast, rich blacks. You understand charcoal better than most.

Nice work! These are great drawings! You have a wonderful range of value. What did you use for these?...........and thanks for the comment, that's just the Oregon forests for you.
Posted by katherinenelson on June 08, 2010
Thanks so much! Charcoal on paper and an eraser. White is usually the paper itself...very rarely a bit of pastel. Oregon does have wonderful forests :)
Posted by buildingwall on June 08, 2010
Oh nice, thanks. I've been working with graphite and bristol paper lately in the same sort of fasion and I've really liked it, but I haven't been able to come close to the contrast and range of values you have here. I like how well defined the forms and perspective are in your drawings too; that sort of crisp line quality is kind of difficult to acheive with charcoal.
Posted by katherinenelson on June 09, 2010
Hi Builingwall...what paper were you using for the charcoal? something with some "tooth" and 140lb minimum with some sharp faber castel charcoal pencils will help you achieve crisp line....but in charcoal "soft and atmospheric like your photo above is really wonderful too!
Posted by buildingwall on June 11, 2010
Hey Kathrine. Thanks! I was using a heavy weight bright white paper, it is a pretty smooth though, nice for blending graphite pencils, but I'll try something with more "tooth"; I'll have to pick up some faber castel charcoal pencils too. I do really like that soft, hazy, atmospheric perspective too, but I think drawings like that are always better when they're grounded/contrasted with some crisp lines to better define certain areas in the foreground. I think you do a good job of that in your work. Thanks.
Posted by katherinenelson on June 12, 2010
Thanks for all the new stars and the compliment. I have some other charcoal artists you could look at at www.internationalcharcoalartists.ning.com a web group I started for drawing in that medium :) as well!
Posted by buildingwall on June 12, 2010
No problem, your work deserves it.... Thanks, I'll check that out.
