new sketch

This is my sketch from last night's group. The model was terrific, and had on this whole costume of pantaloons, a corset, bows, and vintage shoes. I would have swore she was from Victorian times! I tried a drawing of vine charcoal on some cream drawing paper first, but that was not working, so I went back to my tried and true method. I am very habit forming when it comes to materials. I like to work with very specific things. If for some reason I use different brushes, paints, charcoal, etc than I am used to, it's like I am completely lost. It's like asking a musician to perform with someone elses instrument, I guess.
I had to work quickly on this sketch because I used up time on my first attempt. Hence, I drew the face very simply, and I like the result.
