Here’s my latest attempt at drawing. I didn’t keep close track of the hours it took to create. I’m estimating 5 hours of drawing pleasure. This was done using graphite pencils and willow charcoal. I had never used willow charcoal before. I am pleased with the smooth, rich darks it creates. Don’t use it until you are done with your drawing though. It tends to easily smear.
