Charcoal with Watercolor Challenge

Charcoal Silhouettes

I started out with watercolor washes on 140# cold press paper, following with the charcoal figure drawing.  After a coat of fixative spray to keep the water color layer from spreading and the charcoal in place, it was ready to adhere to a 1.5 deep wood cradle with sides painted black.  A final spray of UV protection allows the work to be displayed without a frame.
