Dinner with a Crossword

DInner with a Crossword

Dinner with a Crossword

I went to my new drawing class today and we drew with vine charcoal, mostly on its side. It was wonderful to see the technique modeled by the teacher and the other students. Their work inspired me and now I am eager to learn to draw with charcoal. I went home and tried it some more. On my home drawings I added some watercolor to help define the figure.

I liked the pose, a man recharging with dinner and a puzzle. His gaze is on the puzzle, his attention to his dinner is secondary, and his shoulders show some tiredness. It caught an end-of-the-day feeling despite my unfamiliarity with the new medium.

This is a charcoal sketch on drawing paper and was edited a bit with Snapseed.
