Large Format - Extra Soft Fine Art Charcoal
Perfect for Lifesize Work
" I use a combination of chalk and charcoal for preliminary sketching when beginning a painting and Nitram's larger sticks are perfect for lifesize work. They encourage broad and energetic marks when blocking in my subjects and unlike typical vine charcoal, Nitram's structural integrity holds up to the abuse that comes from drawing directly on the rough surface of canvas.”
