Coloured pencil? Pastel? charcoal? ink?

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

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
