Drawing the Hair with Charcoal and Chalk
Drawing the hair with charcoal and chalk.
There is no particular formula for drawing hair; it is simply a matter of observation. Our technique requires a close study of the effects of line, tone and texture on the form of the hair. You also need some understanding of the characteristic qualities of charcoal and chalk and what it capable of as an artistic medium. You can find out more about this on our page: Charcoal Portraits - Materials and Techniques.
