Artist: Tessa Chan
Title: The Soul of a Stranger
Media: Charcoal
Grade: 11th grade
School: Acalanes High School
Teacher: Robert Porter

This piece is probably my first time drawing with charcoal. I drew it in my art class at school to practice values with a new medium. First I toned my paper then I drew my sketch and shaded everything before going back in with an eraser to make highlights. I spent a while using an eraser to define his beard. It’s from a while ago, and I haven’t made any changes to it.
