Last for 2018

So, last trip to the studio for 2018. This year has been a pretty productive year for me in the studio, in both finished pieces and my continued learning. I want to thank all of my friends, family, and followers for allowing me to share my studio experiences with you this past year. Your support and comments mean so much to me. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

Another charcoal portrait on Strathmore gray toned paper to finish the year.

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

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!

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.
