the shadows became more important to the drawing as it developed!

the secret is to work on prepared paper and not just paper!!!

and don't you get stains all over the place when your hand touches the paper ?

the way I work if you touch the charcoal it comes off - on your hand/shirtsleeve whatever so you learn to keep your hand off drawing - if doing detail I use an old brush like a mahle stick!
