I recently watched a portrait artist use powdered charcoal and water to create a portrait. I have yet to truly understand the medium but here is my first attempt with it. 11x14 charcoal and water on Bristol paper. The top image has been modified by the computer to have a blue cast which I felt imbued an added depth of emotion, the bottom is a close-up of the original.
I am the middle aged mother of 8 beautiful children from teenagers to a preschooler. I am in the process of making me who I want to be. I love to create anything from bread to acrylic paintings and everything in between.
