Charcoal is another unique way to draw on the medium of your choice. Drawing with charcoal produces a rich, dark color when using it for drawing. You can easily blend lines with charcoal and give your work a depth not available with other mediums. Charcoal is a very crumbly medium to use and it smudges very easily. However, charcoal is also very versatile and water can be added to it to give a charcoal wash effect on your work. Charcoal is also now available in other colors besides black.
