“Couch” charcoal on paper

There’s so many feelings that passed as this was being drawn. Satisfaction was not one of them. Standing back, and without a piece of charcoal in hand, it’s a much different experience.

(note: laid down an initial base layer of tinted gesso on the masked in section of paper. Experimenting with with working on a substrate. It gave the surface tooth that could be altered with a sanding pad and tinted to an off white using a yellow gouache.)
