|Self Portrait Study from Life |
11x15" Graphite & Charcoal on Paper
Well this is as far as I am going to go on this one. I could keep going for at least several more hours but I am forcing myself to stop as it is just a study, it appears I am very stubborn ;) I am quite happy with the way the toned paper works with the graphite layers and will definitely be playing with toned paper a lot more!
I was not able to try the charcoal until near the end as the charcoal I had on hand seemed to waxy so I ran out and got some other stuff that seems to work much better so I am excited to try mixing from the beginning for the next portrait.
So other than the proportions being off I am pretty happy with this one and am looking forward to the next study :)
