4 Melbourne sketches











I have roughly sketched out these four canvasses read for painting. This isn't my usual process as I normally sketch in paint, but doing it in charcoal was very enjoyable. Hopefully the paintings will be done over this weekend and will be posted here. All being done for the the Camberwell Show in Melbourne and are being picked up by the courier on May 20th!

These are great, can I ask as to why you used charcoal rather than paint. I always draw with the brush and was curious.

Hi Stehphen
Like you I always paint with the brush, but just this once i tried charcoal..I sprayed with fixative then painted over it.
