Making Trees From Charcoal
A while ago I was bought some charcoal and a huge sketch pad (A2!) to try and tempt me out of my finickity den made of microscopic pencil strokes. I have a special fondness for the trees on Cannock Chase so I did some studies of the ancient oaks and a solitary conifer there.
Charcoal is such a lovely material to draw with. It was large, expansive, messy and highly enjoyable.
