More Jivemania - original charcoal figurative drawing


My crazy little characters can't stay away for long - they're back and just as wild as ever!  I used vine charcoal - I love the soft or extra soft for this.  The paper is Strathmore drawing 9 x 14".  Charcoal is the most wonderful!  And my characters like it, too.  They tell me it helps them be even more expressive and loose.
On a totally different subject, I saw Trouble with the Curve on Sunday and loved it!  It helps, of course, if you're a baseball fan, which I am, and a fan of Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams, which I also am - but I think I would have enjoyed it anyway.
Thank you so much for visiting Hackberry Street Studio - I hope you'll drop by my oil pastel blog.

Thank you, Hilda - to tell you the truth, I get a little dizzy, too!
