Another session using DrawThis on Youtube and I’m back to the conte a paris charcoal pencils.

I’ve caught a cold I think, so I wasn’t feeling well enough to start painting so I fell back to my trusty charcoal pencils.

I realized that I like the drawing paper for these pencils much better than the smooth newsprint. The 5 minute drawings I did was on white drawing paper and the others were on newsprint. I liked how more subtle lines would show on the drawing paper.
