  9. Yes I can see that this technique, while being extremely practical will also add a wondrously enjoyable aspect to one’s drawings as one learns the different applications, of course I am definitely no artist so my knowledge here is somewhat limited but I do remember experimenting when I used to draw, which was simply eons ago… lol

    I guess it is rather like smudging the pencil lines of a drawing to add depth, or to create intricate shadows, yes I think that using a small cloth to apply the charcoal is a very useful tip for anyone viewing this section of your artistic techniques, and it also saves one’s fingers and palms from being covered in charcoal so how about that for a welcomed piece of information? Nooooo not mine, I am talking about Debbie’s… lol

    Thank you for taking the time to explain your technique
    for charcoal rubbing with the aid of a small cloth… Excellent

    • I like it for the smooth finishes I can get, as well as the large area I can cover in a short period of time.
      Charcoal can be messy, but worth it.
      Thank you, Andro!

    • Blow! Then wipe very gently with a damp cloth, repeat as needed. Finish off the cleaning job with with your favorite monitor cleaner. And keep that dust away from your PC because it gets inside just as smoke would.
      Hugs, xx
