For the past week, I’ve been doing a serious piece in charcoal. It’s finally finished! I hadn’t used charcoal for a very long time, so it was nice relearn the techniques. I thought that charcoal would be similar to pencil or at least graphite, but that was not the case. It has a completely different feel of its own. Mainly, it’s much more smudgy (I almost ruined my piece more than once!) and therefore it blends well. It could, I suppose, be called the dry equivalent of oil paints. Here it is!
It’s not as refined as it should be, but it still passes as a finished piece. Charcoal was very fun to use, and I hope to do it again soon!
