7/100 - 07.12.2009

Another charcoal drawing today, this time of a macro photo of a small swiss army knife. The paper is tinted so I tried using a white pastel for the highlights. The paper was quite grainy so the texture is showing through a lot, not sure if that's good or bad, also I found it hard to get smooth areas of shading - as you can see in the shadows. Bit of a problem here with the size of the different parts as well, the scissors should have been a bit longer.

Charcoal and white pastel on tinted pastel paper. Photo (mine) used as source.
