Drawing Back onto an Acrylic Painting
I have just finished a Mentor Workshop in my studio in Arroyo Grande, California — so I am back working on my own work that I started during the workshop — a large acrylic painting on canvas — and now, I am drawing back into the canvas with charcoal and pastel.
Why? I like to draw. I also like to combine pure paintings and drawing at the same time.
Later, after I have finished, I’ll “seal” the charcoal with a fixative — I prefer SpectraFix, a casein-based fixative used for charcoal, pastels and watercolors.
Watch the video! I demo drawing with charcoal and give you a close-up of my materials.
Thank you for your interest, questions, comments and support!
