Coloured pencil? Pastel? charcoal? ink?

They are all good choices… and will depend on your own personal preferences and how you “see” the subject.


Coloured Pencil

will have vivid colours. The grain of the paper may add slight texture. Features and details can be quite precise


Pastel chalk

comes in a wide range of very rich and juicy colours. It allows very smooth blending and usually has a softer more painterly look, with broader strokes.


Hatched Ink Drawings

can capture a likeness in a less convventional way. Ink drawings are bold yet minimalist. Ink works well for adult subjects.
