Is there a right or wrong paper to use for a graphite or charcoal sketch? Lately I have come across charcoal art pieces done on a variety of surfaces (newspaper, paper bag, MDF, canvas…) Each has a unique look and I am sure, and new set of challenges. Time for me to try! Thought I would start small – see where it goes.
12×18 Charcoal Sketch
I did this sketch on textured, colored paper. The challenge was the deep tooth of the paper.
I had to include this quote this week.
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. ”
There was a lot of “dust” this week – the sketch was a great escape!
