Charcoal drawing

New charcoal drawing completed this weekend.  This time was a large one. I decided I wanted to try drawing on a much larger scale and broke out my charcoals again as opposed to my usual graphite.  Here are some pictures as well as the model standing beside it so that you can see the physical side by side size comparison of it.

“Wiafe Mensah-Bonsu”

This is a final painting done from the paint sketches or what we call “postcard sketches” that I do.  They are small 5 X 7’s.  And sometimes I just love the paint sketches so much because it’s so direct and expressionistic- of which I am a big fan of expressionism.  I found in doing this sketch that there were a lot of purples in Wiafes face, and translated them in the final as an undertone before I put the warmer oranges over.
