Playing with charcoal

I have been having a little play with the willow charcoal sticks, when I need a little bit of colour I have used derwent tinted charcoal, white in this case. Hares again! I am really enjoying these little messy black sticks.

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

    Your hares have a lot of life. I like the neutral palette.


    • Thank you, I am enjoying charcoal, the simple lines enables me to pull out the parts I feel are important in the animal, the spaces allow the viewer to imagine what they like, with more practice I hope to learn how to omit more lines, I feel it is quite a skill when artist can paint something with few lines/ brush strokes allowing the viewer to create the image. Although I don’t wish to paint like that regularly I think it will be a good lesson for me…… Especially for one that is overboard with paint!
