1 Charcoal One of the oldest and most evocative mediums available. Created by Carbonizing wood in airtight containers.

2 Two Types of Charcoal Compressed Has a more intense appearance and used for larger areas of tone. Vine A more delicate form of charcoal to express line quality.

3 A rough tooth paper is better for charcoal because it can hold more of the material than a paper with less of a tooth.

4 Step 1: Spread charcoal evenly all over the paper to establish a middle tone/value.

5 Step 2: Using a kneaded or gum eraser, to “draw in” the lighter values.

6 Step 3: Draw the darker values back in with the charcoal to create value contrast.

7 Step 4: Apply spray fixative. Spray fixative is a resin dissolved in a spray form that holds the charcoal/pastel pigment in place.

8 Spray fixative can be applied if the paper is no longer holding the pigment or to keep the artwork from smudging once the artwork is finished.

9 Charcoal Tips: ○ Use strong light/dark contrast ○ Layer the charcoal ○ Use vine charcoal for underdrawing (it erases easier than compressed) ○ Use eraser to draw ○ Blending tools ○ Finger ○ Tortillion ○ Rag/paper towel
