Objective:

Be prepared to get your hands dirty as we use charcoal to create an expressive picture with a wide range of tones and textures, from bold shading to fine marks.

In this study we capture the school playground with its large trees and play equipment. It forms an interesting composition with the bulky shapes of the trees and whimsical lines of the equipment.
