Morning Cup – In Three Steps

I started this drawing without a plan, deciding to just let things happen. You can often come up with some exciting finishes by doing this. Other times you wish you had thought it out more. Either way, it’s fun.

The first thing I did was to make a line drawing on the computer. I then copied the line drawing in pencil on charcoal-grade paper.

Next, on a whim, I added shading using a charcoal pencil.

I didn’t like that at all and in an attempt to save the drawing I used a smudge stick to soften the charcoal. It’s not great but it is what it is.
