Charcoal Sketch

I've used charcoal before to sketch, but never really played while doing it. It's so easy to shade and erase(with a trusty kneaded eraser)and go back and shade and erase... and change things. Of course, I think I started to wear my paper out in spots but really enjoyed the process this time.

Madonna and Child finished

I used so many different background colors and finally came to a nice warm one.

Underpainting WIP

Sometimes I love the underpainting better than the finished piece.
