Day 7 of 21

Sorry Ellen, but the idea of using pastels makes me cringe! It's the chalk-y feeling of it (like nails on a blackboard sensation, it's only worse for me to think of using vine charcoal) So here's a little black gouache on hot-press arches, using a brush. It is fun to see such a graphic image. And I truly spent just 15 minutes (or less?) on this one.
