|Sloss Furnace - 18x24 - Charcoal - January 2016|
It's been a crazy week. Ive been sick all week with a respiratory infection. I so hate to have to drop my class but it's not looking good. I'll see what doc says today at my follow up appointment. I dug through some of my favorite photos today to find something to sketch, since I've been out of it for a few days. I love the Sloss Furnace in Birmingham, AL. I've done numerous sketches of this area and I found the charcoal to be a perfect medium. The vine charcoal is so light and easy to smooth over. This one was quick...like less than a couple of minutes quick but it was fun to sketch some. One thing I've got to get out is my larger easel. I did this sketch flat. It's hard to draw from your shoulder and make big strokes when you work flat.
