Charcoal Still Life

(Updated to change the pictures from 'medium' to 'small'. The medium pictures were getting crowded out by the sidebar.

The first, by Mariel:

This next is by Triss:

They were most fascinated by the teacher's ability to keep her hand off her paper as she worked, thereby avoiding smudges on her still life. They told me about it in amazement.
