In the second of three short films that explore some of the materials and techniques found in #TheEncounter: Drawings from Leonardo to Rembrandt, artist @robinleehallartist introduces the basics of chalk.
This soft rock naturally occurs in black, red and white forms and can be cut into sticks for drawing. Marks made can be easily erased or blended, providing a very flexible medium for artists when creating drawings.
Do you have a favourite material or technique when drawing from life?
Discover The Encounter at the National Portrait Gallery, on display until 22 October.
