Working with the burnt sticks again ๐Ÿ˜

Nearly finished on this one, it’s been a while since using charcoal.


  1. Wow! This is great! I could use some lessons in using charcoal…. Iโ€™ve only had mild to moderate success when Iโ€™ve tried. (I really donโ€™t know what Iโ€™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 ๐Ÿ˜‰
