    Wow! This is great! I could use some lessons in using charcoal…. I’ve only had mild to moderate success when I’ve tried. (I really don’t know what I’m doing!)

      Same here!!
      I haven’t had any lessons in art so I can’t really advise but I’d have thought that the usual practice practice practice is key. It’s been an age since I’ve done it so I was quite out of practice.
      One suggestion, practice value scales for a bit with it. For the lighter tones hold the charcoal stick at the very far end to barely stroke the paper – as you know otherwise it’s various shades of black πŸ˜‰
