Tattoo

Tattoo, 2007, conte crayon on paper, 24 x 18 inches
This is another drawing from my Saturday mornings class at the Arts Students League. It seems that I only feel comfortable using pencil when drawing, but on Saturday I felt a little more adventurous and used a very soft, silky conte crayon in a pencil form. I guess you can call it conte pencil! Well whatever you call it, it worked great. It gave me that light soft touch I get with regular pencils, something I have never been able to do with conte crayons or charcoal in the past. I am happy with the outcome, and on next Saturday I think I might use a shade darker of conte.
