Drawing using a ground

Working on a new drawing in art class, familiar theme, had to make an Australian animal from brown paper, then draw it. We’re working a lot lately with preparing that paper with a ground. (That’s the background, in this case a mix of gesso, willow charcoal, and chalk pastel) I hate blank white paper, as an artist and a writer. Ruining it with random mess means anything I add to it can only be an improvement. That can free up the creative process a little.

The is only half way done, well be working on it more next week.

I appreciate hearing from you
