  • Blending: This involves using a blending tool or fingers to smooth out the charcoal marks and create a soft, even texture.
  • Layering: Layering involves building up the drawing in multiple layers, starting with lighter tones and gradually adding darker tones to create depth and contrast.
  • Erasing: Erasing is an important technique in charcoal pencil drawing as it allows the artist to remove unwanted marks or to create highlights and textures by removing some of the charcoal from the paper.
  • Contrast: Contrast is an essential element in charcoal pencil drawing as it creates a sense of depth and dimensionality in the drawing. By using a range of tones, from light to dark, the artist can create a realistic and engaging image that captures the eye of the viewer.
