Technique 1: Lighten Areas
In your visual diary, shade an area with a stick of compressed charcoal. Then with your Kneadable Eraser, use a dabbing and dragging motion to pick up and remove the excess charcoal. This will lighten your focus areas.
Technique 2: Make Highlights
Use your Micador For Artists Greys Sketching Set to draw a shape in your visual diary. Darken the areas with the deepest shadows and use your eraser to rub out the pigment where the highlights are.
Technique 3: Draw with a negative colour palette
For this technique use compressed charcoal to darken your page. Then using an eraser, draw a shape or object whilst rubbing out the charcoal.
