“Portrait” male portrait charcoal on bond




Ok ok this blog is “Daily”.  And by that I mean “Weekdays only and some weekends at my leisure” 😀

Today this drawing,  “Poise”, was sold on e-bay.  If you are considering something, I have my painting “Passion” ending tomorrow morning.  I recommend bidding before someone else does so you can get the incredible price.

Bid here on “Passion”

I have just finished a piece in my Jumeaux series, but have to wait until daylight to photograph it without glare (or with less glare, anyhow.)  I will definitely put it up tomorrow (and earlier, rather than late like I normally make my posts) 🙂

Graphite on newsprint, 4×6

This was my sketch for the painting “Lost in Passion” that won the contest in February.  I paid attention to my layout and composition as well as keeping my values restrained, while still adding detail.


And a glarey sneak peak at my next painting in my Jumeaux series, which should be done on the morrow:

This portrait was intended to capture her seeing eyes.  Recently sold.

And an update:


I am going to finish this soon I believe.  I would like to work on the edges, and of course, put in the arms and finish the background.  I like showing progress pictures 🙂 

I will be out of town in Washington D.C. tomorrow and the next day – so I will not be updating until Thursday at least!  Hope you have a wonderful Spring Break (even if you’re not on one!)

“Happy Feet” Charcoal on Bond 16×20

“Happy Feet” Charcoal on Layout Bond paper, 16×20


In this one I wanted to capture multiple angles of the feet in a more detailed rendering.  I created loose lines to draw the attention to each foot individually, while still keeping my drawing accurate and tight.

Fresh off the easel (or still on it!)  There’s some glare in the photo.  In this photo I wanted to capture her distant and expectant expression and the cool shadows on her cheek and hair.  I will be able to take a better photo when it is slightly drier tomorrow.  Painted very thickly on this one for effect.

Here is a closer shot and one from the in progress:
