Portraiture

"William"
18x24" pencil and white charcoal on toned paper


I've noticed lately that I've really been getting into portraits. I've always had an interest with them, but lately, it's been heightened. For the past few months, I've been brainstorming some ideas for upcoming personal works and have decided to pursue a solo show. This show won't consist mostly of work I've already done, but instead, new pieces focused in portraiture. I'll go into more detail later about what I intend on doing specifically with my portraits, but until then, here's a sketch for one of my latest commissions, so far the sketch is only after one sitting, but I'm happy with where it's at so far.
