Charcoal Still Life Part 1 — 1 Comment

  1. I love what you are doing with the boot. Don’t let the charcoal get to you. You are helping us see how to use those erasers. I have never used those other erasers or brushes. I have used the Kneaded eraser, but not those other ones. I usually go from light to dark when I am doing black and white. However, because I am self taught somewhat I am seeing another way to approach black and white. Also i have tried to stay away from all mediums but graphite now I won’t be apprehensive about doing charcoal or pastels anymore.
    I might even go back to painting!
