Charcoal Portrait

Beryl and Dennis came over to our house on Boxing Day, and we all had a wonderful time.

Paul and Dennis did some woodturning - and Beryl and I watched and followed an instructional art dvd.
Here is my charcoal portrait drawn whilst watching the dvd.

Not being used to charcoal or portraits, I'm quite pleased with it!

  4. Charcoal is a wonderful medium! I like the Willow variety best because it is so soft and movable. Great effort!!

  10. He is very interesting to me. I can't decide if he is threatening or just sullen. Very nice Pat.

  11. Thanks, Marie. I went through threatening and sullen and ended up thinking he was introspective and sad!
