makin' a mess

As I was taking my usual walk tonight, for some reason the thought of coming home and experimenting with charcoal sounded appealing. I've been thinking about this for awhile, but I decided that tonight I was going to go for it. It was a nice break, once again, from my usual work method. It was nice to get my hands covered in charcoal, and using my fingers as a blending tool was pretty cool. It's been awhile, and hopefully it won't be too long before I use them again.

If it's not already obvious, I love to do portraits.

Both are beautiful! I love how the hair was rendered with the one at the bottom! :)
