Portrait in Charcoal

I'll be on the theme of portrait drawing in my posts for the next couple of weeks, and if you're in the LA area come on out to my Workshop this Saturday, August 18th where I'll show you how this is done.


This one is done with charcoal and white nupastel on strathmore 500 series charcoal paper.

This is wonderful! If I lived closer to LA, I would take the workshop. My son just moved to Bakersfield, though, so maybe someday I'll visit him and take a workshop! Good luck with the 18th!

Thank you for sharing your work - this is so beautiful and compelling - love the way you draw! And also for the you tube demo on charcoal portraits and the wonderful stories of Clark Allan - you have drawn him with such compassion and feeling... it is such a touching portrait because empathy you guide us to feel - much appreciated - stunning drawing! Would love to do a workshop with you one day... Kindest Regards, Judith
