Alexandra in Charcoal

This is a charcoal portrait of Alex. I am getting much more comfortable working with it, lifting it off the paper, pushing it around with a dry brush and pressing the charcoal dust into the paper with tissue paper. Charcoal is wonderful to work with because it is fast and once framed can last hundreds of years just like a painting. I love it!
