Combining Charcoal with Watercolour

This week, my art classes were combining watercolour with charcoal. This is an old idea which was used by the illustrators in the early 20th century. Jessie Wilcox Smith used it in her amazing illustrations for Ladies Home Journal.
We were painting from life using some flowering plants.
