Experimenting in Charcoal portraits

I posted a graphite version of this one yesterday on my FB page, but I love the mood of it, so I framed a piece, worked on finishing another, and spent some time doing this one again in charcoal. Love experimenting with that stuff.

Sketching time!

Some recent sketching in charcoal or graphite. Just keeping “in tune” until I can get some painting time in the studio. I have commissions to complete! Having fun with every stroke of a line, and loving it.

Thanks for viewing!
