After collage, my favorite medium when I first started creating art was pencil.  To this day I feel like I don't give pencil /charcoal enough attention.  There is something so enjoyable and rewarding about using these simple art materials.  After doing this exercise I really want to get back to drawing more and more.  Although these drawings take time, it would be nice to have one always in the works.  I hope you will feel the same way.  Drawing like this is a great way to become a better, more confident artist, and a great way to work out ideas for other works of art.
