Willow charcoal and another moose variation

I cut some green willow twigs, peeled the bark, and packed them in a Christmas popcorn tin with a few holes in the top and bottom.  I placed the tin on the fire before I went to bed and in the morning I opened the tin, revealing some willow charcoal sticks.  I did a rough sketch of a moose with the charcoal.  I’m not all that proud of the drawing but I thought a moose was an appropriate subject for the medium considering the word, moose, comes from the Algonquin word for “twig eater” and moose do love to eat willow twigs…
