This online session via Zoom will explore a gestural approach to portrait drawing from life. With just a simple black rectangular charcoal stick and a newspaper block, Peter will show how to create line and shading and how to prepare the charcoal with sand paper so that a wide variety of line weights can be achieved.

This FREE session is for anyone who wants to meet and learn some great techniques from an experienced artist or who just want to see an artist working. All levels of experience are welcome to join.
