I'm falling in love with charcoal.
I was given a packet of charcoal pencils for Christmas and until now I hadn't really given them much thought. I've played around with them, but nothing really serious.
Over the last couple days I decided I wanted to do a picture that I'd been planning for ages and ages. But I needed the right medium. I also decided that I'd give my charcoal a go and see how it went. And, as I'm sure you can tell, it went rather well.
They are just brilliant for shading. Something I love to do with my graphite pencils. Making the folds, the light and shade. Love 'em. Next week I shall upload a picture of what I drew.
For now, I shall continue practicing with them. And I'm sure you'll see more done with them in the near future.
