Charcoal drawing experimentation

charcoal

This charcoal still carries the ghost of the branch that it was. You can see the stub where another branch would have forked off and the natural shape of the stick.

Look for some examples of the techniques of charcoal drawing such as smudging. What fun! Make sure you have a plastic sleeve to keep the drawing in or everything will be covered in charcoal!

I love the synchronicity in my life! I had just introduced the children to charcoal experimentation and then I visited  Kathy’s house Family Day Care/ where she has a small fire pit. The perfect example of charcoal children can connect with.
