Holding The Charcoal

Holding the charcoal can be very different to holding a pencil. The charcoal medium is usually used with speed and lends itself to a more sketching approach to drawing. It is not usually used for detailed drawings and is used more broadly as an expression of our observations. So therefore, the way we approach a charcoal drawing can be very different to how we would usually do a pencil drawing. When we are doing a pencil drawing we tend only to use hand and wrist movement, but when doing a charcoal drawing, we almost always tend to use our hand, wrist and arm as well in the action of the drawing.
