This is a series of abstract charcoal portrait drawings, approximately 11″x14″ in size. While charcoal is used as the foundation, other mediums are used to enhance each artwork, including watercolor, acrylic, oil pastel and marker. The charcoal faces share a loose, high-contrast style with shadowed eyes. Each portrait drawing interprets the subject differently, from impressionistic human faces to ghostly or demonic impersonations. Charcoal art also contains characteristic smudges and smears that help create value and atmosphere.
