What you’ll learn


  • You will learn how to use sharpened charcoal and a kneadable eraser to create an extremely detailed portrait


  • Learn how to work with the point of charcoal. This method is slower than conventional approaches to charcoal, but makes it easier to control forms and tones.



  • Starting from a simple but accurate block-in, you will learn how to add detail gradually, ensuring that the underlying major structures remain in place throughout the process and impart a sense of believable solidity to the finished drawing.


This workshop will help you to...


  • Create more realistic and detailed drawings.



  •  Enhance the sense of luminosity in your drawings.


  •  Expand your repertoire with charcoal - working with the point of charcoal can work really well with other techniques.
