Charcoal Portrait Drawing

Hi everyone, what do you think of the new update with communities? Today I am sharing with you a quick charcoal portrait drawing I did on A3 paper of an old woman.


This was the image I used when drawing (I do not know the source of the image) however, I found it inspiring the way the technique is very subtle and some form of charcoal was used to create it. She has quite a sad expression the way she looks into the distance and I wanted to capture that in my drawing of her. I used a charcoal stick and it was sometimes tricky getting the finer details with it so may work at a larger scale next time and I used a paint brush at times to blend the tones.
