As willow charcoal is erasable, it is ideal for a range of different artworks and is especially popular for drawing a composition sketch before applying artist paint or another medium.

Yes! Their charcoal is well-known for being the best quality willow charcoal in the world and is great for a diverse range of drawing applications.
