This is a Charcoal I drew on 140lb Canson Watercolor Paper. This is the first Art piece of Children in Haiti that our friends gets to spend time with on his Mission trips. I wasn’t sure id I wanted to add color, leave it Black and White, so I left the option open. I could have Painted Watercolor over top or even used Gouache. I actually loved using Charcoal on this textured Paper!

FYI, My go to favorite Paper has always been Mixed Media by Strathmore, it is tougher than most and you can shade beautifully.

I think I will do this scene in a different medium, just not sure what? If you have suggestions please share 🙂
