Today's post features a little charcoal study of a boy building sandcastles at the beach: 

It's been a couple of months since I last used charcoal.  Once again, on the whole, I found it quite a pleasant medium to work with.  I feel must be honest with you and confess to an ongoing battle of wills throughout the compositional process where despite my best efforts, at times the charcoal's levels of smudginess were perilously close to getting out of control.  In the end I think it was Charcoal 5; Kate 4.  You may have won this time Charcoal, but I'll be back and better next time - I *will* prevail! ;-)
