Two Souls 2

I am attempting to set up a space to photograph these in progress pieces so that it looks better and so I don't have to crop the painting. So far its oil and graphite on wood. More physical layers are being made in another room, but its a surprise!

Self Portrait Finished

I received a 9 out of 10 on this assignment. More pictures of my other painting to come!

Charcoal Self Portrait 3

Just some last minute touches left...

Charcoal Self Portrait 2

Amost done!

Charcoal Self Portrait

I was afraid my last self portrait was too big and did not follow the guidlines of life-sized so I had to make another smaller one. Here is a picture after about and hour and a half to two hours of work...
I am only using a charcoal pencil on illustration board. I am challenging myself to not blend the charcoal because thats what I usually do and I want to make something realistic exclusively with lines for the most part.

Two Souls

This is a narrative piece pertaining to the coming together of two souls. I am just working on the first layer. It has the blue splotches because I used this piece of wood as a palette for previous paintings and the paint got through the plastic I had over it. I think it will add to it nicely though.
