One of the things I do miss about figure drawing class is being able to have a model to draw from. I absolutely love drawing in charcoal, but it is so messy and gets everywhere. It is so hard to keep the stuff on the paper too. Even after you spray all sorts of fixative on it, the charcoal still wants to come off on your hands just not as much as before.

This was a charcoal drawing I had done in my Drawing II class a couple of semesters ago. The model was great, and I was really loving the fabric around her. I wanted the fabric to have as much life as the model and have it be on the verge of being something more than just cloth.
