You know I love your art... I especially love "Jumping Girl" in charcoal... I love doing charcoal and/or conte crayon on gray stock (paper), love the white highlights. I think I love it because you can do so much using tones and highlights, expressing so much without a ton of detail. You do it very well.
Thanks Ace GSD!
Susan, i´m totally agree with you, with this technique the drawing gets a lot of expression and as you can see in the picture you don´t need more than three pencils.
I think I've told you this before, too--I love your grasp of anatomy, and I think you told me that it's from observation, not formal study of animal anatomy. It's been yours from birth, you grew up with it.
