What you will learn

In this lesson world-renowned painter Steve Huston will demonstrate his charcoal drawing technique on a female reclining figure. Steve will take you through each step of his process, starting with a light lay in using a stump loaded with charcoal powder. After that you’ll learn how to establish a clear core shadow in charcoal and then create the shadow side of your drawing by scrubbing in a gradient away from that core. Next you will develop the major forms using halftone, core shadows, and a darker contour line in conté crayon to contain the volumes. You will learn how to resolve all major forms of the figure as well as scrub in the environment using dark tones.
