How to draw in charcoal

These videos teach a lot of standard techniques for charcoal. One technique for charcoal is to use the eraser to help develop form. Sometimes it's easier to define the subject by erasing darkness to light. Because it's so messy, each individual's technique becomes apparent. Some artists start at the top or at one place in the drawing emerges without a smudge. An example is Kyle Baker's beautiful charcoal drawings Some artists work on the whole thing and once and smudging is a part of their technique along with the erasing. Erasing is both part of your mistakes and your technique. Drawings by Raphael and Michelangelo and da Vinci often show lots of erasure. Something for you to try, is my new technique, gesso and charcoal. When used on a panel, or canvas, GESSO is both a great eraser and a great tool for tone studies. The beauty of using Gesso as your eraser and blender is that gesso is used, normally, to prepare the surface for paint. An example of charcoal and gesso used on panel is represented in the following painting by Jackson: How to Draw in Charcoal Drawing and Technique This technique blends the charcoal into the gesso and forms beautiful greys and halftones. Old marks are perfectly erased leaving no shadows. Some are gifted with the ability to draw almost without erasing and some of us can correct her way to near perfection. Great artists have said that they paint by constantly correcting. The beauty of gesso plus charcoal is that you can correct almost forever, add fixative and then paint. This technique lends itself to old world layering and glazing techniques because the halftones are already present. How to Draw in Charcoal | Drawing and Technique
