Yesterday morning I decided to take Tam's challenge over at Willowing and Friends. It was to do a piece with just the following colors: Black, grey, white, titanium buff (which I forgot!), salmon/skin tone (but not on the face), and a touch of pink. That was it.
I've always wanted to try charcoal and thought this would be the perfect medium and so I created this little girl. Charcoal was really fun. I used my fingers and a blending stump to blend. The pink and salmon colors were Pitt Pastel pencils by Faber-Castell. They work just like the charcoal.
