Happy Halloween! Which Witch is Which? Charcoal Drawings

 Happy Halloween!

This first drawing (above) is a 40 minute attempt, I had to leave early, and was my last drawing of the day.  Thank you Gloria.

Here's a 20 minute charcoal (below), I believe this one was my first during this session. 

 Warm up, and another 20 minute charcoal.

One more 20 minute drawing of the great Gloria.  

All done on 24x18 paper, and charcoal.

Smallish oil painting on board

This afternoon I painted.

I liked the drawing that I did the other day so much, I decided to have a go at painting this piece.  Promise you, I feel like a kid in line that's just next to get on the roller coaster.  Its more than excitement, its knowing how you will stay on track (literally lol) memorize all the curves, and remember the highlights, and have fun.  Believe me tho, a lot of work has gone into this little piece.  Feels like my last 10+ years of study is coming together.  I cannot wait for what I learn in the next 10!

Recent Charcoal Studies

Most of the following are 20 minute drawings.  Should I slow down? Should I speed up?  I don't know, but I do know this... I love doing them.  And by the way, on some you'll find '20 Min' written on them..20 minutes that is..
not Zomin
 although I suppose I turn into 'Zomin the Artist'
for that 20 minutes, right?

...wait, no..who?

The first 3 of the woman is a wonderful model, I enjoyed her elegant ballerina movements as well.

The next three of the man dressed in Renfest attire, which by the way was extra wonderful in fact, was incredible to watch pose as he knew just what to do.  And I appreciate that.

I'm sure some will turn into paintings,
stay tuned,

I love babies.  Cuddly babies.  I miss my children being little.  And the adoration in their baby eyes.  Which I'm sure they saw back at them as well.

hey...just a minute...


about 8 actually :)

8 minute drawing, 24x18 charcoal, life. Really liked the design of her when I found I was done. Also, I like the application when its done this quickly, it has a certain verve. Its really exciting to see what can happen with the charcoal in that amount of time or less. I completed three, will post others some other time. At the moment, she's my favorite drawing from today so I thought I'd share.
