Drawing Practice

It's a very gray, blustery day outside the treehouse studio today. So a perfect time for some Chai tea and drawing practice. And I do need practice! My class has lot's of drawing assignments and though I prefer painting, I understand how important the foundation of drawing is. Just haven't done it in a long time and I'm very rusty.
Started with some graphite pencil sketches and then changed to charcoal with white pastel.
Learned this technique in Misty's class and will definitely practice some more-I don't think I had the right charcoal pencils or white pastel-Good excuse huh?
This was a set I bought at Hobby Lobby with a coupon.  I have an overabundance of art supplies but had never tried pastels,  so first attempt.......
For some reason I think my drawings look sad, or a little "alienish".  Maybe sad aliens?  Oh yeah, I definitely need more practice!!!!

Flea market today.... Stop by later and I'll show you my "treasures".  Have a great weekend.
