Very nice...

I've never been really good with charcoal, or pastels...Lol! What I really like is scratchboard, and glass etching...gotta get some mirrors though! I really need to take some pics of my stuff for critique...lol!

Wow-this makes me want to paint.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Thanks everyone for the compliments!
Drawing again-but a person this time.
My parents' golden anniversary is this year. 22 years on the 22nd of October. So this is really early I know but I thought I'd give it a couple tries before it gets too close.
So this is my beautiful mother on her wedding day.

This is by far my favorite out of all the ones you have posted. Her emotion is captured exquisitely, and the softness of her curls show. You really capture the texture of her dress and jewelry wonderfully. People are hard to do (I find them much harder compared to horses, but that may just be me), and if I had the talent you have I would use it to its fullest and make more of your beautiful portraits.

Good job! I just discovered charcoal for my drawings and really starting to like it. Great job on your drawing!

It's been awhile (I seem to go in phases) but I've got another one done. I realized how close the Artist of the Month kickoff is getting to be and thought I'd better get my act together and get drawing again!
So here's the latest, not a horse but it's something.

This is a request from a friend of mine.
11x14 in Charcoal.

And another
11x14 Charcoal

This one's a bit on the sloppy side. I just wasn't feelin' it.
