As promised, here's what I've been working on in the studio. I'm never entirely satisfied with whatever it is I've put over the mantle, so I thought I'd try my hand at charcoal. Remember my post from a few months ago? Well, here's my first stab at it. Okay, my second. The paper is a little more textured than I would want, and easily becomes overworked, but it's cheap, which makes mistakes a rather forgiving possibility. You can't tell with a picture, but it's huge. And I'm never sure when I'm finished. Should I frame it and find out?
