Profile in Charcoal - original charcoal drawing of woman in kimono

charcoal drawing of woman in profile
Love these profiles - this is a quick one in charcoal on 12 x 9" smooth Colourfix paper.  Not a lot of grit to it (what did I expect when it says "smooth") and I like it a lot for pastel pencils, not so sure about using it when drawing with charcoal.  It'll be okay with oil pastel, but won't hold lots of layers, so I'd better work at getting it right the first time and not piling it on the way I ususally do.  Thanks for stopping by!

She's beautiful Connie. Love the profile view. I LOVE smooth colourfix paper when painting a portrait. I find it takes many many layers of pastels. Again, love this...Have a wonderful day, my friend!!!

Hi Hilda and thanks so much - am so glad to get your review of the smooth Colourfix! Sounds like it's a keeper!
