For two days I drew the acacia thorn. As hard as nails and able to pierce right through your shoe. The danger of these I hoped to capture in charcoal.
Like the acacia, charcoal has an unforgiving nature. It requires absolute confidence. For really, once drawn there is no turning back, you must stick with what you have. However much you rub away at the paper, a shadow will remain as a reminder of where you’ve been. Sometimes this is a interesting quality. Sometimes, like this time, I wanted stark thorn, no wishy washy third and forth attempts.
I did not really succeed but it was good to change medium. I will do some more….
