Hi guys. I finally faced my fear and used charcoal! Thanks to Lynn, my instructor.
My fav things for still life: metal, glass, and cloth.

...creative stuff coming soon!

When I first looked at this, I laughed and thought "Liar, you just posed some cups in front of a paper".

I looked again, and I choked on my water.

It looks great, if charcoal is difficult for you I certainly can't tell. I'm especially impressed how you conveyed the different textures inside and outside the silver bowl/cup thing.
