Fun with charcoal

Still exploring line, this time calligraphic I attempted to copy a pen and ink sketch by Bacon. While his is an elegant figure, seated on a rug reading mine seems to be a strange hump backed person leaning against a mound of earth!
But it was fun trying to copy and I’ve come away with an even greater respect for the drawing skills of an artist who claimed he couldn’t draw.
If I’m brave I’ll post some of these laughable attempts later. Meanwhile – how do you get charcoal off a laptop keyboard? Anyone?
