      History of Charcoal Drawing

      The charcoal consists of pressed charcoal powder.

      In art it is a commonly used tool because it is cheap and easy to make yourself and offers good opportunities for correction. In addition, they can be used linearly and pointedly, as well as broadly, blurred and painterly. It dusts heavily and smudges easily, making fixing necessary. Various woods such as willow, linden, fruit trees and others are used in the manufacture. It is important that the wood has grown evenly.

      Charcoal must not be too soft and not too hard

      The charcoal must not be too soft, but also not too hard, otherwise it will smear or splinter, and it must also blacken well. The cut sticks are wrapped in clay in bundles or placed in a sealed clay pot. After that, they are slowly baked in an oven. Recently, charcoal powder has also been pressed into sticks, which allows for different degrees of hardness. Charred wood has been used for drawing since primeval times, as evidenced by many cave drawings. Nevertheless, up until the Middle Ages it tended to be used as an aid, for example for preliminary drawings or for exercises.

      Fix charcoal drawing

      It was not until the 15th century that hand drawings became more highly valued globally and the trend towards suitable fixing methods began to be used that works were created that were the ultimate goal and not a preliminary stage. From then on, it was fixed either by placing it in a glue bath or by brushing it with glue. The flawless method was to apply glue to the sheet before drawing, apply the charcoal after it had dried, and then soften the glue in steam and fix the drawing in this way.

      Charcoal Drawing Landscape, Abstract & Portrait

      The charcoal drawing with its very unusual character opens up massive opportunities to depict motifs and convey ambience. Drawing with charcoal means that particularly expressive solutions have long been created with various strokes.

      Portrait designs and sketches, landscapes and nudes can be represented in various ways with charcoal.

      Can't put it into words!
      A perfection that says more than 1000 words! Since we had to say goodbye to my father-in-law very early on, he didn't have a chance to get to know our offspring. When my wife opened the gift, tears came to her eyes. It is the best gift you can ever give your partner. The service was super nice and always there when there were questions. A great team 👌
      Thank you for this moment I was allowed to experience with my wife 😘

      Despite poor quality of photos, made the impossible possible
      I ordered this picture for my husband as he doesn't have any pictures in common with his parents. The photos of his parents are old and therefore not of good quality. Despite this, Sketchus team made the impossible possible and painted a beautiful portrait with all the details. We'll see how my husband reacts, but his brothers were moved to tears.

      It really turned out to be a really beautiful picture.
      Since my father-in-law can never see what his mother would be like with the last grandchild in her arms, we had this wonderful idea and Sketchus Portrait allowed us to bring him to tears.
      Thanks again for this great drawing!

      Wonderful portrait drawing! ❤️
      I found this site on the internet and thought it would be a perfect gift for my husband to have a picture drawn, his dad and our son. Together, although they never got to know each other. The Sketchus team fulfilled my wishes and gave me an insight into their design. When the picture arrived at home I was very overwhelmed! Such a great job and so much attention to detail.
