(Erased drawing by Barb Krekow) Welcome to Day 2 of the 30SAL Challenge! To learn more about the 30SAL Challenge, click here. Today’s 30SAL Challenge is a creative idea from Seattle Artist League instructor Charity Baker. First, tone a piece of paper as dark as you can with soft willow charcoal. You might find that paper with some tooth or texture such as cold press watercolor paper holds the charcoal better than smooth paper. Once your paper is all dark, then use an eraser to lift up areas of light, erasing carefully to leave dark lines. You can draw from observation, or make something up! Don’t have soft willow charcoal? Get creative! You can draw, paint, print, collage, sculpt, assemblage, or digitize your response to any challenge. Post to Instagram Post to Instagram with #30SAL so we can find it.
