Works on Paper

Next week we open a new exhibition at Railway Street:  Works on Paper!  I’m looking forward to seeing what the other artists come up with, but in the mean time, here’s one of my works:

Fabric Study: Willow and Compressed Charcoal on Leonardo 600g paper

Doing works on paper can be frustrating for me when I’m used to using oils on canvas, (and my watercolors have long-since dried in their tubes) , but I love the raw immediacy of charcoal… and it’s a great way to get to know the subject before working up a larger painting.
