Quick Self portraits in charcoal

Self portrait

Charcoal on light grey murano paper

16x12 inches

Wanted to get some drawing practice in so decided to have another crack at the portrait and since I'm the only one who's willing to model- it's me again!

This one was done in about an hour and a half

This one took about 30 mins- considerably faster sketching, again charcoal on light grey Murano paper
16x12 inches
Portraiture really is one of the hardest disciplines there is. Trying to acheive a likeness is tough work, but a great challenge.
I'm waiting for some oil paintings to dry on the easel and enjoyed getting some drawing practice in meantime!
