art,  Creativity


I recently rediscovered charcoal.  I love working with it.  I had forgotten.

If you’ve never used it I highly recommend trying it.  It’s available at any art supply store and it’s so easy to use.  I love the ability you have to shade and really get your fingers dirty. I was introduced to the idea of adding white pain at the end to add highlights and I think it’s brilliant, not to mention another opportunity to finger paint as an adult! 

Below is a youtube video on the basics of getting started with charcoal.
