​Charcoal Drawing

A study, sketch, portrait or nude, the memory of a landscape: you have to sketch it quickly! Charcoal is the perfect tool for drawing. 'Natural' charcoal is wood charcoal; partially burnt twigs or sticks from shrubs, usually willow, plane tree, birch or spruce. Each plant species gives a different rendering to the design. Thanks to its thick texture and ability to blurr, charcoal allows artist to fill their drawings with a wide range of monochrome shades. This tool also enables great freedom of movement. However, charcoal requires delicate handling to prevent it from breaking, so a draughtsman's technique must be excellent. Lastly, lines obtained with charcoal are more pronounced, rough and wild than those made with sharpened tools such as pencil, pen or felt tip pen. The final drawing looks vivid and alive.
