Peek into my Sketchy Life – Nudes, neck down and neck up

I’m getting a bit bored with pencil and charcoal . . . I seem to bore easily . . . so

Charcoal on paper, 10 minute sketch

Charcoal & pastel chalk, 10 minute sketch

. . . .I’m trying to break out of my sketchy rut and not be so preoccupied with getting exact likenesses.  It is an ART class . . .Acrylic Paint on canvas board, 7,031 hours & 24 minutes

This actually is a pretty good likeness of the photograph.  The woman had a black eye but I swear I’m innocent.

This was an experiment pasting collage paper on the canvas and then painting over the paper – creates texture and FUN.

  1. Such a nice job of portraits. I love the flexibility of charcoal… I like all the different sizes, from the very thin vine one to the thick squares and also using a kneaded eraser is so fun! Have you checked out Diebenkorn’s work, you probably have.. but he is SO inspiring how he rubs the paper until there are holes and all sorts of markings….
