Making Marks with Charcoal
I decided to try drawing with charcoal. I'd heard using charcoal is similar to painting, in that it can be manipulated (smudged) to give light and dark values.
These are sketches. They aren't meant to "be" anything. I'm just playing around with lines and getting a feel for what charcoal is like on mixed media paper.
I really like some of the movement in a few of these sketches. I will probably use them as "jumping off" points for later works.
Have you used charcoal in your drawings? If so, what are some things you've learned by using charcoal in you artwork?
