Introduction to Charcoal ~ Workshop by Rebecca R F Ferreira

I recently gave a workshop introducing drawing with charcoal at Heather Taylor´s atelier in Estoril.
We explored drawing with different types of charcoal and manipulating it with many different tools: rubbers, cloth, brushes, scalpels. We explored using a combination of these to create textures, light and dark, reflection and mark-making. We drew from life and also practised letting our intuition take control of our drawing, in an exercise of abstract drawing.
An enjoyable day was had by all!

Please contact Rebecca if you are interested in a charcoal workshop in the future, thank you.
