Beautiful Woman by PeacexLovexHope Beautiful Woman by PeacexLovexHope
My fourth charcoal piece that was copied from a famous artist at the beginning of the 1900's.

I absolutely love this piece. It's probably one of my favorite I've ever done, and especially my favorite charcoal piece.

Done on 18" x 24" charcoal paper.

:D Thanks for looking, and please comment!

This is stunning! The lights and darks you were able to achieve using charcoal are amazing. Her hair is beautifully done, and so realistic. I love her profile and relaxed look. This is a marvelous deviation!

Beautiful drawing :) The hair flows beautifully, her posture is poised yet relaxed, and she has just enough expression to look alive. Lots of subtle detail in the way the lines create her delicate yet statuesque appearance. Very pretty!

yes! it can. it pretty much drives me crazy, since in university, we have to do sooooo many nude model charcoal sketches and such - gets everywhere! but the effect is nice... gotta say, its a bit of a love/hate

:iconpeacexlovexhope:
PeacexLovexHope Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2010
It's a love hate for me, too. But it's not the mess, it's just that the charcoal doesn't do the details that I really want that I can get with pencils! hehe

Haha really? My professor likes us to use sand-paper to try and get it as fine tipped as possible, but with charcoal (at least the type we were using) it only lasted moments and then became blunt again.

minowa-san Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2010
haha wow! i would have liked your prof! why did i have to get the dude that liked a more abstract feel...?? haha. then again, the sand paper would have gotten rather tedious too. - why not just use conte then?

He was really specific about the type of charcoal we used. He liked the vine because it was easier to blend and it was great for beginners. I actually am rather fond of vine charcoal, I just hate how easily it dulls lol.

you're welcome =D yeah, when I was like twelve, Smithsonian Magazine did an article and had Lady Agnew on the cover, and I've been hooked ever since. He's got such a unique style, and even though it varried over his career, there's a certain signature there. I remember walkin through a museum and sorta doing a doubbletake "hey, isnt that a...YES!! it is!!! woooo!!" =)

Oh wow! I remember having those types of moments whenever I would walk through a museum or gallery and see an artist's works and be like "Hey.. that looks like.. AHAH, IT IS!" haha Those are always some of the best moments. :D
