About This Class

In this class I will share a technique for using chunky charcoal to simplify the composition sketch. Often I find artists get overwhelmed with details when approaching composition drawings. By using chunky charcoal it will help eliminate details and focus on what's important - finding the darks & positioning focal point.

Who is this class for?

Anyone that wants to add another tool to their creative arsenal.

I loved this! So cool the way a few charcoal strokes can bring an image to life. Can't wait to try my hand at this, although I know it won't look anything near as good as Robert's drawing. Well done! : )
such great information, Thank you!
