trois crayons

This is an excersice using charcoal, sanguine and white chalk. This technique is called trois crayons, I had a lot of fun trying it. I was focusing on keeping the crosshatching clean and organized and at the same time make the drawing look fresh and loose. I had a very hard time with the paper it is very delicated paper and gets damage very easily. After all it was a good exercise.

Fresh out my sketchbook

Sorry for the dark shadow on the left of the image, but I could not get the sketchbook flat on the scanner. At least the image didn't get distorted.

New drawing

I've been super busy and have a lot of new stuff to upload, but no enough hours in the day.
For now this is a recent sketch I did from a photo found online ( if somebody recognized it and knows the name of the photographer please let me know). I really liked the atmosphere of this image and that's what I try to capture on the sketch.
