Description: Start off by picking your supplies. I used B and white Euro Blend charcoal. These are the equivalent of 2B/4B charcoal/graphite and regular white charcoal. If you are drawing this using graphite follow the same steps but replace the white charcoal with an eraser to help you with highlights and blending.
Description: Start off by lightly and roughly shading over your paper with charcoal. Your charcoal pencil will work fine for this if you shade very lightly, however, if you have soft vine charcoal use that instead.
Description: Before moving away from the sky add a bit more detail and layers to the clouds. Use you charcoal pencil to go over the darker areas of the clouds and a blending stump to smooth them out a bit. Then use white charcoal to add highlights to the clouds and blend those in as well.
Description: Refine the shading on your lighthouse. Add multiple layers to the light itself to make it brighter. blend your white charcoal into the dark charcoal to add more values. Get as detailed as you want to here.
Description: Add finishing details to your drawing. I started from the skies and worked my way forwards with my details. Use white charcoal to add more highlights to you water and use a blending stump to soften t a bit. With a drawing like this there is always something somewhere that you could improve so just work on it until you are happy with how it looks and call it done! I hope you all have as much fun with this drawing as I did and with any luck you will be seeing a video tutorial for this drawing later this month!
