Re: 3 charcoal portriats

Love, Love Love these! Great work. I love seeing the actual strokes left in the portrait. Very dramatic, makes me want to pick up the charcoals again...

Re: 3 charcoal portriats

Great work! I especially like the first two- they have real energy. What do you use to spray it? A cleaner spray bottle (Glass Plus, etc.) will die after a few hours with acetone.

All are flammable- I used lots of acetone once in other paint work, and suffered no ill effects. Denatured alcohol might be OK also, but do not use toluene- it is especially toxic (the solvent of airplane glue).

I love it! There is so much life in your drawings, and wow! The backgrounds are powerful!
