Mid - Conversation

My plan at the beginning of the year was to be more consistent with my blog posts but it seems that has fallen by the way. I really cannot believe how fast the year has disappeared and how few posts I have actually made! For the last two years I have struggled with a shoulder injury which seriously hindered my creative output but I am happy to report that although not completely pain-free, I am experiencing increased mobility of my painting arm and hope to produce more beautiful works of art.
I love working in charcoal and am particularly drawn to the human face, especially the character-filled faces of those in advanced years. Thanks to David Kassan who has introduced me to pan pastels - a far less time consuming process than the charcoal powder which I have used until now. 


  1. I can see your passion for the subject and the medium very clearly in this piece! It comes shining through in the way you portrayed your subject with such expression! Glad the arm is getting stronger and looking forward to seeing more!

    1. Thanks Katherine. I am looking out for more models. I will have to get over my shyness and just ask.
