This makes number 9 in my current Emotion series.
The model here is my little boy "Josh".
You be the judge on the emotions here, I don't want to give anything away.......
This piece was achieved by first of all, ghosting and handling the charcoal dust as a watercolour, then blending it together with my fingers to give uniform tones. A medium oil base pencil was then used to put in basic lines, details and sensitive strokes. Then I employed a hard graphite pencil to temper the remaining parts.
