BEAUTIFUL work! Loving your charcoal work, I'm desperate to get in and play with charcoal again, but I've got so many pastel commissions and exams coming up that there is no time :(

Thanks Kayty...always nice to hear compliments from a talented artist like yourself.
Here's my latest. I had told my manager at work that I would do a portrait of his baby boy-going to be a year old this July.
So here he is-this is Beckhem.

11x14 in mostly medium charcoal with a little soft thrown in.

Not that I don't love your horse drawings, because I do, but your human portraits are really something to be admired. Your technique is not only impeccable, but there is so much emotion in your portraits. I am so jealous of your human portraiture!!!!

Same as Liz, your ability to do human portraits is incredible, I can't draw a human to save my life!

Thanks Liz and Kayty-right back at ya's with the colored pencil and pastel drawings. I get so jealous! I'm so attached to black and white, one of these days MAYBE i'll give it a go (maybe =) )
It has been a ridiculously long road to being able to draw people. I may have mentioned before, my uncle was very talented in the art of capturing faces and my mother with animals. I've always drawn animals and thought to commemorate him I'd take on the challenge of people. Still working at it but it's coming along!
Side note on my mom: She went with me today when I took my latest batch of drawings to get copies made, the portrait of her included. I didn't even think about it. Well so much for waiting until October =) But the reaction was awesome anyways...it made her cry! And when I gave my manager the portrait of Beckhem today he was speechless. Always nice to get neat reactions-helps me remember that I need to keep doing what I do.
So now that I've rambled...thanks again gals

I've got to get back into drawing horses! I feel like i've been neglecting them lately. I've got one in my queue that I might bump up the list and work on tonight.
Anyways~this is the latest

I love the Keegan portraits! I absolutely love that horse! I know the woman who was training him and saw him up close at the Noble Horse Theater a few times. Amazing boy! :) Awesome artwork though! I wish I had some artistic abilities!
