Studio Table 18

This is obviously a 'serious' drawing, but also just another studio table drawing.  I drew just what I found: no setup, nothing moved, etc.  I did select the view.  I also discovered an interesting way to proceed:  I was doing a prep drawing intended for painting in oil on gessoed paper, but the way the charcoal went on the gessoed paper was so nice, I decided to just make the drawing.  I plan on doing more studio tables with just charcoal on gessoed paper.  I did 'fix' it.

Nice drawing. What kind of paper - how many coats of gesso?

Wow. Quick comment! Canson Mixed Media paper, with two thin coats of gesso. Thank you!
