Untitled



Charcoal.

I love you and I hate you.

I love you for your deepest black against the white of paper. I love your ability to cover large areas quickly, and I adore your square sticks that don't roll off of my desk. I love your rough edges, and smooth strokes. You are bold and heavy,  yet soft and subtle...you are drama.

I hate you because you are dirty.

  1. Same feelings I have about charcoal. :) Even with all the dirt, they are still my most fave medium for just those reasons you mentioned.
