You will be scaling up your sketches from Lesson 1 and that this means everything within your drawings will get proportionally larger.


Watch the video: Charcoal animals ( You can play this on a loop while you do the work.


Begin by creating a rock texture by lightly rubbing crushed charcoal and earth tones of chalk pastel over sugar paper with a paper towel and spraying with fixative (or hairspray) to fix (do so in a well ventilated area).


Once the background is prepared, draw your favourite British animals from your sketchbooks onto large sugar paper. Look for key 2D shapes and to check the relative size of each part of their animal.


You can fill the area using charcoal, chalk or pastel sticks or with paper stumps (made by tightly rolling paper towels and sticking them together with tape) rubbed in crushed charcoal powder. Using these can reduce the amount of chalk or charcoal you get on your fingers.


You should sketch lightly so that you can smudge away mistakes.

Remember to keep your drawings in the style of prehistoric artists, with simple, bold lines and shapes.
