  • It's really great the way you draw these beauitful, evocative woodland scenes with bits of the trees that make them up (if you see what I mean....)

  • Charles, I understand that you have only recently moved into charcoal drawing? Can that really be true? Because these drawings are simply brilliantly done - I don't need colour here: I can infer it and sense it. I don't think you need any sort of tip, but I'll offer one anyway; I've never had this sort of result from charcoal, but I have had a lot of pleasure out of black conté crayon, and spray of fixative, and white conté on top; or a carbon pencil base, with or without conté crayon: the harder degrees of conté crayon and carbon pencil work well with this approach, and can be exploited even with a touch of school-grade white chalk on top. Most of my drawings in these media are on good-quality cartridge (eg, Daler Rowney's red and yellow sketchbooks) and some on watercolour paper. Combining these media with a little water on a brush - both charcoal and carbon pencil work well with water - produces very interesting results. Then you can add ink; watercolour; gouache; pastel; acrylic - it really is a lot of fun! You have a real artist's eye to have produced a drawing like this, with all its contrasts and "lost and found" edges - and I sense that your voyage of exploration of media has only just begun - but is taking off.

  • Yet another great study and, yes, I will try charcoal but I am busy working on a few local scenes (in my line drawing style) which have been requested by a local gallery for consideration - so here's hoping !!!
