I'm really thinking these last couple of posts have great potential. Have you checked out Japanese shodo art? elements of some of these simpler pieces remind me of that art form.

If these are on newsprint I'm gonna brain ya.

=they better be on good rag, acid free paper. They're worth it.

I'm in love with the movement of #5. Looks like a dragon while #3 looks feminine and sensual. Many of them, like #'s 6, 8 & 10 are all indicative of profile/portraits to me.

I see movement and form in all of them, whether contained or not.

1,11, and 7 really do it for me. I like the strength of your darks in these. Nice fluidity too. I wonder if they may be a bit too centered in composition though? I donno.

Hi James! I have sensed the Asian influences in these but I havent done any research, thanks for the tip. I have been eyeballing the Sumi Ink/brushes that Tamana suggested awhile back.

Happy Bday Mame! Im using quality paper ;) With the last few runs I am using Strathmore and its much more receptive to the charcoal marks than the Canson I was using. Thanks for the post.

Hi Tam! I didnt notice the profiles until you mentioned it. I feel like these were a milestone for me, thanks for the post :D

Im gonna be watching myself with the next run. I too see the centered balance in them. I bought about 12 chunky sticks of charcoal and surprisingly they all behave a little differently (same brand). I found a good stick of ripe, rich tones and found myself going back to to it again and again. Thanks for the post!

#3 rocks
imagine this transmogrified in oils
feels like the effort required to overcome gravity

three has a simple ancientness to it i love
a sacred sound vibrating
one looks like the directional windpath of a spinning top:D
i too would like to see it less centered
grow a bit crazy outward
you might like to try getting some white chalk in with this
get more depth and highlights to really send the eyes on a trip

Hi Much! OH yes, I have been dreaming of these in oils. It will take me some time to be this loose with a brush. I hope to start experimenting with abstract oils this month on canvas paper. Thanks for the input.

Thanks for the words on my work - its been fun to hear everyones reactions. I bought some white pastel today. (the white charcoal chalk turns bluish). Thanks so much for the tip, we'll see how it goes. :cool:
