Seeing these so often on the journey to and from work (even if they are off into the distance) it's easy to be inspired by the mountains here. I recently got a hold of some charcoal and having never really used it before, decided it would be a great way to try it out, by creating some stark, angled, mountain-scapes.
Charcoal is great fun to use, it creates these beautiful sharp angles and can soften in places wonderfully as well. I like the way it can be blurred and shaded to create shadows too. I still need to practise on this front as I know there's so much more I can get stuck into with charcoal but I was fairly happy with this as a first attempt!
Have you used charcoal before? Does anyone have any tips for me?
Hope you all have a lovely Tuesday!
