Eagle Owl

I love the challenges that are posted around on various sites and sometimes I actually say OK, I'm gonna partake in that one! Lee, of A Day Not Wasted, posts his beautiful photos and a monthly challenge for artists of all styles.

Charcoal and earth pastels on Canson paper
cheers all!

Respect the 'stache (Gustave Courbet; the Desperate Man)

Gustave Courbet. The Desperate Man. (See, Eileen, I can spell) 
His self portrait and one of my favorite paintings. 
So close! Dang it! but just the slightest nuances and the whole thing shifts - his nose, as I ever seem to do - is dropped down a touch to far and that dropped his mouth down. Oh well, back to the drawing board. Had a blast drawing him. Charcoal on newsprint.
I am hoping and praying for those affected by Sandy. I hope you are all recovering. Rooting around for something to donate to the dailypaintworks Hurricane Sandy fundraiser

God's peace, Karen
