Portraits of Imaginary Friends and Other Impulses

Sketching isn’t something I love doing, but I know its very good practice.  I love the flow and spread of paint, and really I hate the drag of pencil across paper.  If I am going to sketch I prefer charcoal, but I don’t like it all over my hands.  I have found a nice solution in charcoal pencils.  Sticks of charcoal nicely wrapped up in wood.  Here are a few of the new friends I have created this week.  Three girls each with a different feel.


This one was inspired by my daughter, Z, who always seemed a bit like Wednesday Adams.
