Charcoal medium, HB pencil, and a pencil called Stabilo CarbOthello 1400/635. on sketch smooth sketch paper 12x18 inch. I'm just learning about charcoal and pencils. The Stabilo is a brownish color pencil that isn't pastel yet isn't graphite. I'm not even sure where it came from. All I can say is I'm in love with the range of shades a person can possibly achieve with these drawing tools. Simply endless possiblities.
