I've been distracted from my pastels for the moment in favor of some charcoal!  I wanted to draw with charcoal, and white chalk on gray paper.  I have a pad of Canson charcoal paper and some Canson Ingres paper (one big sheet that I cut into smaller pieces).  I did these sketches of black plums and cloth this afternoon and I loved it so much!  I think I like the charcoal paper better than the Ingres.. the Ingres has a line through it that shows up as you color over it.  I'm not so sure I like how it stands out.  I suppose it wouldn't be so obvious if I had used the whole sheet for a large drawing.  I used soft, medium and hard charcoal pencils and a white charcoal pencil.  I also plan to try a drawing on Canson Mi Teintes paper too, to see how that comes out.
