charcoal portrait drawing woman realistic
black & white charcoal on tan paper
11" x 14"

Portrait drawn from a photograph. Because I was dealing with black hair, a white shirt and tan skin, I chose to use tan paper to 'split the difference.' It also allowed me to use a white pencil for the shirt and black charcoal for the hair, leaving a large quantity of the face the color of the paper.
