    The strawberry was harder than it looked. I used charcoal and then struggled getting bright enough highlights for some reason. Thanks Scott for the advice during the lesson on using fixative then going back with white charcoal-it helped. Some spots got a little blue-gray. Oops. Overall, not bad I guess.
