This is a charcoal face, no experience with this medium at all. Also exercise in limiting colors.
It is a mix of papers, paint, charcoal, writing. I have always liked manilla paper. crayons, pastels, pencil, and charcoal adhear to it nicely. I did the face, cut around it added patchwork paper to the back and then the other papers. I did a little stenciling on her dress and a watery mix of paint behind her head. Black, white, yellow ochre and pale yellow craft acrylic paint were used.
