My charcoal nude study is based from a European woman from Austria. I created a strong sense of elegant shape and smooth shadowing to create a sensual and confident feel. I create as I see and add shadows through imagination. I include hints of stretch marks, scars and dimples as I think these add to the feminine realistic beauty and also help tell the story of existence. I use a smooth brushing effect as I create the curves and blend the shadows.
My charcoal drawings are sealed with high quality fixatives and have been sold worldwide to art collectors and businesses. The thick 220gsm art paper work is not framed, though will suit a regular A3 frame.
