Kate Thompson and the depth she achieves. I think I'm still at a stage where I'm drawing more of a cartoonish flat face, but really want to develop to draw artistic faces. I was thrilled that Kate was teaching at LifeBook 2014 and this is my take on her lesson of drawing with charcoal. I couldn't draw just one face...I wanted to see what would happen if I made the nose longer or the face narrower, etc etc. I like the one in the center best. Just for comparison, I did a set of faces using graphite where I feel more comfortable - well, just more practiced. Charcoal certainly handles differently.
