The tutor, Chris Cristoforou, gave a very comprehensive insight into the capabilities of the new range of tinted charcoal pencils. Firstly he showed the range of tones and colours available and the shading effects achieved by blending with a cotton bud. He then demonstrated this by working on a landscape. By careful sharpening it is possible to achieve much more detail than is possible with normal charcoal and this was shown to good effect by working on a portrait.
Some photos of the demonstration are shown below.
