Charcoal & Chalk

In today lesson I wanted to explore a different medium that I dont usually use,  as well as work on a larger scale then I would usually.  This was a personal challenge and one that I really enjoyed. Working from an images from my phone I created two Charcoal and Chalk drawings.  This was really freeing as it aloud me to be quite expressive with my mark making.

I experimented with soft and thin lines and the contrast between the Charcoal and chalk on the black paper was very successful.  It made the whole image stand out from the page.  Below I have shown the steps taken to create the lion as well as the final image of the ram skeleton.
