Black and white ..

Back to reality (for this one) lol  .. A few days ago I gessoed some watercolour paper with the intention of doing something in charcoal on it.  When I reached for my charcoal tin .. it was missing :O .. I searched high and low .. eventually as inspiration was leaving me I decided to just use a black pastel pencil for this.  So here it is .. It's a little bit unfinished and will probably remain so ..  It's not a very good photo!

I think it was meant to be that you couldn't find your charcoal tin. Lovely drawing.

Such attitude, and I love the black and white!

Ha ha! Thanks Michael - I think the charcoal would have given a softer look to this and a smoother paper would have helped also.

Sandy, Thanks, I have not worked in charcoal for ages and just wanted to have another go with it. I've found the missing charcoal now - so maybe another one will appear soon.
