Self Portrait

Self portrait tonight…

I had a ton of fun with this drawing tonight. I was working on ingres paper which has much more tooth than any other paper I work on. The great thing about the ingres paper is the way it can wear down an extra soft piece of vine charcoal quickly and rain charcoal down over the drawing. I found the effect very interesting and I tried to leave it as much as possible in the drawing. I will have to do more like this.
