Patience is the key
Jonathan has such great patience, which was illustrated in a recent class. Drawing in my class is not just about laying down a line or value but working that charcoal mark after it's been applied. In this photo, he's demonstrating an excellent job of patiently blending the vine charcoal on his paper to show subtle variations of shadow and light. I was even more impressed with how he captured a deeper level of dimension on the nose by making just a few strategic eraser marks to suggest highlights. Super impressed with his work and progress!
