Walking around 'Naardermeer' - 8a; charcoal drawing
The last scene I painted inspired me to do a charcoal drawing as well.
I want the focus to be on the white bridge standing out against the dark chestnut tree and suggest some bushes, grasses, reeds and the small stream the bridge crosses.
That is not so difficult when I am using charcoal. In fact, almost all the effect happened by itself. Charcoal may have its limits, but it is a great material to work with.
Personally, I feel very pleased with the result of my work.
More information about this charcoal drawing and the watercolour painting I made can be found at my new website www.jannekesatelier.webs.com
