More experimenting in charcoal

This mornings charcoal effort. Trying some new approaches to the medium. Kind of liking the style. Charcoal on Strathmore toned gray paper.

It’s really too bad that I have to add a copyright label, but apparently there are some out there that feel our art is free to use wherever. #stopinfringing

Owl Painting Commission work

These little guys are a project that I started quite some time ago. They’d been shelved until recently. I finally had time to complete them. Oil on panel, 11×14.

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.
