Ever since I've started calling myself an artist, I really wanted to explore the charcoal medium... I don't know what hinders me in doing so but I've actually made some a long time ago... I even tried real coal (uling) and I thought it was perfect. I still can remember that my first try was a portrait of Phoebe Cates and I love the result and that was during my self-search period...
Accidentally discovering how to use rubber brushes... I thought it was another useless purchase thinking I could use those for acrylic.
So perhaps I found another medium to hone.
