    This Town - cro-magnon's outdoor sketches

    i haven't posted one of these yet. or else it'd already be here. um.

    anyway, this is Newbury, UK, and what i've been making of it. they're all charcoal, A1 size (594x841mm), made on site. they might form the basis of some paintings later in the year, or they might not.

    That's a really neat way of using charcoal!

    i'm not sure what effects you mean. i use a plastic eraser as a sort of negative drawing implement. that perhaps?

    lol, everytime i scroll down its just getting better and better, good work. I suggest working on your elipses, your perspective is solid though. Have you considered working with color?

    there will be more, i've just been neglectful these past two months or so. for colour, i make paintings too but drawing is where my heart is and since leaving college i'm starting to consider painting more of a distraction than a focus.
