In Love With Charcoal

Placido Domingo
I saw this picture in a magazine and I just had to take a stab at drawing it. It is supposed to be Placido Domingo. I’m not a fan of his or anything. I just thought I would take a stab at drawing him. It was such a lovely face. This started out as a quick charcoal pencil sketch on newsprint, but I got a little out of hand. I had to take a picture of it before the paper got all yellow and brittle.

Charcoal is so wonderful. It is definitely worth the mess.
