Black Labrador charcoal progress drawing

IMG_2708

Start of my next drawing.  This is charcoal on Watercolour paper, which I have not used with charcoal before.  I have had it recommended because it is very smooth and so far I am really pleased with it.  I am using Nitram charcoal and charcoal pencils.  I can’t quite get the deepest blacks with the Nitram which is mostly why I am using charcoal pencil as well.  It’s very tricky to draw a black dog because mostly you just see black on the face so I thought this would be a great challenge for me.  This piece will go up for auction once complete
