My first assignment in my head study class was to do a charcoal remake of a painting from the 16th - 18th century master artists. One of my favorite classic artists is Michelangelo so I chose to remake his painting of the Prophet Jeremiah. I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of using charcoal. It takes a long time to do these, but they're pretty fun to do. One of my next assignments is to do one of a celebrity so that should be interesting. I haven't quite picked mine out yet, but I might be doing one of Scarlett Johansson. I found some good black and white reference pictures of her that might work.
