SUMMARY

In this prelude to her full, 2-3 hour workshop webinar, Amanda will walk you through the steps to create a profile of a horse's head using the side of a charcoal stick (you can use pencil if you do not have charcoal). You will use a measuring process to gain accuracy and learn how to build up tones by applying layers of charcoal and use kitchen roll to smooth and flatten areas before applying final touches using a rubber and charcoal pencil (optional).
