“Hank”

I was busy in the studio this Christmas season, for me at least. Finished up some commissions. “Hank” is done in charcoal on 80lb Strathmore gray toned paper.

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!

Charcoal Portrait study

On my easel today. Portrait study of #ekaterinaselivanova on Instagram. Could have gone a bit further with this, but I kind of like the simplicity. Might go into it a bit more tomorrow.

Latest charcoal studies.

I’ve really enjoyed studying and learning this medium. I don’t get much time in the studio to paint, so I draw to keep in “tune”. These two were done over a few different trips into the studio. Again, using reference photos from devianart.com.
