My next step in the Series Six series was charcoal. I was having a tough time visualizing what the addition of charcoal would look like. Then I started having second thoughts and was about to scrap the whole idea. But I stuck to my guns and charged ahead with the charcoal. Well I am glad I did. I loved the results. Next...acrylics.
Whoa, after I posted this I notice the paintings were set up exactly like the previous photo before the charcoal. Way creepy.

I know I have been dragging my feet on this series. But some progress has been made. I am done with the watercolor portion of this series. Charcoal up next. And by the way, if anyone tells you that newspaper is a great watercolor surface, slap them down!

Ink, watercolor ad acrylic is not enough medium anymore so I am adding charcoal to the mix. I just can't let well enough alone. I'm not sure how it will all work, but I am willing to give it a shot. So here is my new series, Series Six. (a clever title derived from the six pieces that I am doing) These are on 11" x 14" canvas board. I glued down news paper to the boards. I did the sketches in charcoal because I couldn't see the pencil sketch on the news paper.
