Expressive charcoal

A good way to release tension

Drawing an organic subject matter, some small shells, leaves, flint or bark, responding in movement to the beats, rhythm and flow of music.

It works well on big paper.  As well as all the marks a piece of charcoal can make, the rubber is a tool not just a corrector and can also make marks.  Putty rubbers can be moulded to make shapes and points.

Slightly textured paper works better with charcoal, but normal sketchbook paper or cartridge paper will do.

Materials: Charcoal, rubber, putty rubber/Blu tack. Fixative/hairspray.
