Drawings in the manner of  Prehistoric Men
Fresco: make a backgroung ; take a large sheet of Ingres paper, rub on it a fatty pastel against a tree trunk, to make a print. ( chosen color here is black, but one can also take brown or white, which gives also an impression of Prehistory). Crumple the sheet and flatten it again. Pour  inks ( yellow, then orange, red and brown) and let them mix directly on the sheet.
Then make a  drawing  with the charcoal and spray lacquer to protect it.
