The Drawing Studio

I guess I forgot to tell you guys that I've been taking drawing classes at the Drawing Studio in Portland. Great fun. Intersting class. Phil has a unique method and he often just reads us quotes from Picasso and other artists while we work. Or he'll rant about Bush. It's hard to describe the drawing technique pictured but suffice to say that it didn't start out that way.It actually started out with a big tongue, remnants of which you can sort of see in the lower right corner. There were eyeglasses too...underneath the current eyes. 

Regardless - I'm quite pleased with the results. I love working with charcoal. And two hours flew by like two minutes.
