New Charcoal and Graphite blend

WIP_ErinThis is my new experiment in charcoal and graphite pencil.  I love the contrast and ‘painterliness’ of charcoal but I also want the control and subtlety of graphite pencil so I thought a combination might work.  It’s odd how we are conditioned to stick to one media like some sort of purist and it just doesn’t occur to us to mix them.  Thanks to my daughter Erin for posing for me… Again.
