This mini lesson will show you how to use charcoal and what to look for as far as supplies go. Our lessons are demonstrated in oil but if you want to use charcoal then this will help you get started. When you buy our lessons you will receive a black and white rendering of the painting to guide you to the end. Remember to follow the steps given for the oil demonstrations inside the packet. When you reach the first step (the lay in) upload a picture of your drawing at www.northwoodartstudio.com and we will give you feedback to help guide you.
