Dog in charcoal

This is my boy, Einstein. This is really the first charcoal (or any medium for that matter) that I'm happy with. I'm not finished yet. Still need to work on the fir and figure out what to do with the background. It was done with vine charcoal on some cheap watercolor paper by Artists Loft. Hundred sheets for 5 bucks good for practice.

Re: Dog in charcoal

Wonderful. I like Artist Loft. Cheap and good for quick ideas and experimenting for larger pieces.

Re: Dog in charcoal

Thank you everyone for your encouragement! I worked on it a bit tonight but not enough to post. I'll put it up again as it progresses.

Re: Dog in charcoal

Good start!. If the head of the dog has very white areas, you could benefit from darkening the background near the head.

Re: Dog in charcoal

THis looks really good so far. Charcoal sticks (pencil is different) is not something I'm used to dealing with as much as graphite pencils, but this is a neat picture...and shows your work and that you know how to use charcoal well.
