Beautiful...all your work is great, but your charcoals on a graytone paper are especially beautiful. It is the delicate touch of the rendering, so that the roughness of the paper peers through. This piece inparticular caught my eye...i think because of the delicate shading complimented by the intense expression of the eyes....MUCHO BUENO

It's from a photograph he took of himself probably about 30 years ago. I really wanted to try capturing his unique expression.

I love toned paper, it always seems to make things just a bit more classy!

I also love the subtle highlights you put in with the white on his cheeks.

Great work!
