    Hi David, I thought I’d have some fun experimenting with this technique today. However the wash took away the charcoal. I used willow charcoal on card. Do you use willow or compressed charcoal, or do I need to use something like Stonehenge paper instead of card to hold it? Cheers.

      Hi Aaron! You need to use a hake brush and do not brush too hard, very soft in fact.Willow charcoal never compresssed. Stonehenge paper is great. Cheers! David

        Hello again David,
        I have just begun rewatching Maliangaapa Man and would like to know what you are using when you brush a clear(?) substance over your charcoal drawing. Is it a type of fixative and if so what? I hope I’m not asking one of your “trade secrets”. If you don’t want to advertise it on the net I hope you will write to me at my email directly.
        Thanks ever so much,

          Hi Shelley! This work was a mixed media, willow charcoal, watercolour & oil pastel on Arches paper (smooth)300gsm. Given that this was the Youtube video. The Blog portrait was oil on canvas.

          Cheers! David

    Do you ever do workshops and/or intensives in the western USA?

    BTW I don’t have any way of making a workshop happen for you in So. Cal but will ask people n the know. And aa trip to Australia is way beyond my means. So here’s to hoping I can find someone who can create a workshop here for you! Wow that would be truly amazing!
