My favourite areas of art are: sculpture, painting, drawing and textiles.
Charcoal is a medium that I have really enjoyed experimenting with recently, embracing the fluid motions and loose marks that the messy medium inflicts. This is quite the contrast to the precise and obvious lines that my previous coloured pencil portraits hold. When I do embrace the harshness of coloured pencil, I use (and always have) the ‘Derwent Coloursoft’ pencils, along with the ‘Derwent Artists’ pencils. Achieving a soft watercolour affect when blended together (I like to use a white pencil to do this), which is why these are my favourite.
