Nude figure sketch

Experimenting with different brands of paper to see what will or will not work with willow charcoal (besides paper that is made specifically for charcoal). Having read that 100% rag printmaking paper handles charcoal beautifully and having some Somerset on hand, started this small unfinished 10 x 8 sketch. Willow charcoal does indeed appear to work great on this paper, I'm going to have to try using charcoal on this paper again.
