A month ago I started to revive a rather neglected medium ( my materials stashed but not forgotten) which interestingly worked out very well for capturing mangrove sceneries.
And I have also introduced basic techniques for this medium to some students in the monthly paint along sessions . This medium is very portable, not expensive and full of potential for really good looking images.
You can create a full range of tonal values just using one single stick of charcoal besides being capable of rendering unlimited line work and texture. Spontaniety and feel is as great and sensuous as pastel but at a fraction of the cost. Please have a look at the posted charcoal image and let me know how you like it.
