Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. The instructor recommends the use of charcoal for this class...I got anxious so I used medium graphite pencils that I already had. I could not achieve enough contrast with the pencils.

Hi Silvana, I get your pun now but unfortunately money is in short supply so I am unable to do any other courses just now. Hope it will change in the future. Still love your drawing though. Take care. Dave
