Rox Corbett is an award-winning artist who makes drawings exclusively with charcoal. Instead of being loose sketches her drawings are detailed and textural and, she hopes, a little moody. Charcoal is a basic medium but is capable of great depth and expression. Rox uses hand-made tools and her fingers rubbed into charcoal sticks and then dry-paints the material onto the paper. Charcoal pencils are used for the sharp edges, big compressed charcoal sticks and home-made willow charcoal for the depths, and erasers to reverse the dark as one would in scratchboard.
