Charcoal with patterns ..

A bit of a rough charcoal drawing done years ago .. I'm really digging out some dodgy ones now. I think it was done on some heavy weight cartridge paper. I was experimenting with patterns at the time ..

looks to me as if you should buy some more charcoal in!

Ha ha .. yes! I think I used most of it up on this! So you think it's ok!

I was not too impressed with it at the time. Still not all that keen on it. I've cropped it back a bit in the hope of improving it.

I have not used charcoal much as it's so messy .. but I just remembered that it is easy to fix .. not like pastel. So may give it another try.

Hey Rosalie,
this looks so much like it could be a self portrait of yourself as a girl. I love how you captured the lips on this young girl, so natural and simply done. The patterns are very nice as well.

Hi Tonya, When the charcoal appears close to my profile pic. I suppose it could look a bit like me .. but it's not. lol Profile pic was taken last year and is showing up a bit dark there - my hair is sort of mid brownish. I like to work with charcoal but in my limited space here it can be messy.
Thank you ..

This works for me. I love the patterns and shapes.

Thanks for commenting Stan .. I think I will try to do some more charcoal drawings. :)
