Yes, a canvas can be used as a surface for charcoal drawing. In fact, many artists prefer to use canvas for charcoal drawings because the texture of the canvas can add depth and interest to the drawing. Just be aware that because charcoal is a dry medium, it can be difficult to erase or make corrections on a canvas surface. You may want to use a kneaded eraser or a putty rubber to remove any stray marks or make corrections carefully. It's also a good idea to work on a piece of paper first to get a feel for the medium and to make any necessary compositional sketches or value studies before transferring your drawing to the canvas.

You can use any type of canvas for charcoal drawings, including stretched canvas, canvas boards, or canvas pads.

Stretched canvas is a good choice if you want to create a larger, more detailed drawing, while canvas boards or pads may be more suitable for smaller, simpler drawings or for practice
