I had this image in mind for some time but held off doing it in charcoal.
I have been waiting to find the right medium that will allow me to use my charcoal techniques but using colour. I believe I may have found it.
Pastel, coloured pencil and charcoal. I used to frown at mixed media preferring pictures in a pure medium - what a fool I was - growing and expanding your view is what being an artist is about.
