Purity – Charcoal drawing (sleeping child)

I have had many of Dions fans send me messages asking me what medium and technique does he use, and how does he get such fine detail? He generally uses finely sharpened charcoal pencils, varying from soft to medium and hard. For more tips and help on charcoal, I highly recommend The Extraordinary Pencil by Marsha Robinett.

This work Dion did in 1992, it’s one of the first works I laid my eyes on when we met, I think it was love at first site 😉

    Very interesting, are these charcoal pencils are different from pecils we normally use. oh, i just see the link you given to explain charcoal pencils. any how it does not look like a drawing, just looking like a photo graph taken. nice work.
