I LOVE charcoal. It's so easy to use children's hands are stuffed with it (and also because it's so CHEAP of course), but it's also difficult in a 'I can't get that line quite right sort of way' - which I think is great because it takes the pressure off of you getting everything perfect. It also marks the page quickly, this sketch was done in 5 mins. I'm linking up with Sunday Sketches for the first time, come join and show off your sketches.
This charcoal sketch was about 15 mins & I have placed it in my large A3 art journal. The sketch is done, as I wanted it rough and ready to contrast the painted pages, but the page itself is still a work in progress so I'll show the full two page spread once it's completed. Thanks for visiting, Jennibellie
