Sad mad and hungry!

I am in love guys.

I am in love with charcoal …and charcoal drawings..and charcoal materials..and theory…and everything charcoaly.

I tried playing with different mediums .. graphite is like first love and it is still there…but charcoal is entirely different universe.

The results it produces are spellbinding..

As I have just started taking drawing a little serious I had to visit a proper store to get supplies…before this I didn’t even know what materials are required for charcoal art.

…and holy moly!!!! The place was artist’s paradise!!!

Such huge varieties!

So I got some stuff…which I read about on the internet.

This self learning process does get wild at times.. one day you directly attempt drawing a 3D portrait and the next day you start reading what do they mean by the word “value”.

It’s a zig-zag road and you are riding a kid’s scootie!

Well. I got the supplies and came back home jumping and dancing (not literally…mercy on the flooring).

And dived into the pool of a million random things..my bed that is..remember I told you guys you could hide an elephant in my room???

So..

When I was assembling things in holders and unwrapping and checking the materials I realized…I have plenty of pencils in a tin of wafers so why don’t I make it a little better??? For that I planned on winding jute rope on it as a base so I pulled out a ball of jute rope and hot glue gun and started working on it.

And…done!!!

I turned and started sketching this value chart I read about yesterday only…

Playing with a kneaded eraser …. Which is just like a chewing gum…made me wonder why did I even buy this I could buy chewing gum and hit two birds with one stone..

And then I was using blending stumps for the first time .. I used cotton bud the last time…result was similar only the stumps are pointed ..

I just got lost in the process….

I sat back a little to straighten my spine…which literally looked like a semi circle..

And…

Something seriously hot touch my finger.. next I knew there was a dot of hot glue on the back of my finger with stings of dry glue flying from it…I was petrified…

I pulled out the dot, it wasn’t completely dry…but it took away a layer of skin..

I could see a layer of something pink I don’t know if it’s some inner layer of skin or flesh.. my first reaction??? A hysterical call to sister who is studying/practicing medicine…well..the details of the treatment are lengthy boring and irrelevant.

Well…

Lessons learned!

Do not!!! Repeat after me…

DO NOT INDUGLE YOURSELF IN ANYTHING ELSE IF YOUR ARE WORKING WITH CHARCOAL!!!

REPEAT AND Memorize THIS!

Well…

I am sad mad and hungry…so I will go have something… eating solves half the problems for me.

      1. Technically not back, lingering like a ghost. If I enter my email I am still seeing my account without the site. It’s weird. But will do. As long as I do it for just 1 hrs. for the next two weeks. After then I will open a site. Not on this account though.
