Model - Charcoal

Hi all! Its always an interesting emotional challenge to post your failures as well as what you (I, that is) consider successful. 
So I am taking a drawing class taught by Chris Armstrong at the same location where Tony Pro and Ryan Wurmser teach, where Warren Chang and Jeremy Lipking have taught.  
I have felt the need to be in a world of like-minded people (other than you distant like-minded people) for a while and needed get in better touch with my focus and discipline. I think I am making progress. The bottom pic is my first attempt with the actual photo of the model on left. The single is my second attempt with some direction from Chris. He is a very kind and patient instructor. There are errors on my second that - always! - jump out at me when I post them. The most glaring is that her eye is slightly too far to the right and slopes downward. And I dropped the corner of the mouth down. BUT at least it looks quite a bit more like her than the first attempt. Moving forward - that's my goal. 
Cheers all! And God's peace to you.


  1. Wonderful pieces Karen!! I love the dramatic pose and that mysterious French Lieutenants Woman look!! Art is a life long learning process and to show your process is generous and a lesson for all artists.

    1. Thank you Azra! I think you and I have been growing so much as artists! Let's keep on this wonderful path, shall we?
