I'm focusing on music a bit lately as it's a big part of my life. At least, it contributes greatly to my sense of identity. I find my artistic process feels similar to that when playing music. This is especially the case when painting with splashes of acrylics. Music guides me everyday and helps provide or access a mood and emotion. It seems to be the starter of many conversations. I kept it simple with this piece, though added a new effect with my charcoal in the fading sections.
I used a specific high quality canvas with environmentally sustainable pine backing. This canvas allows me to create more realistic and detailed charcoal art pieces. My unique process of applying charcoal to canvas to create photorealistic art is done through the use of various paint and makeup brushes cut to shape. I seal all pieces with charcoal fixative and acrylic fixative. Over 200 of my artworks have been safely shipped worldwide; with insurance and tracker included.
