These are some of Patti's very first charcoals. Done on an 18+24 newsprint sketch pad in charcoal. The woman at the top was done first. I love the way Patti did her hair and how you can almost see her eyes. The one in the middle is a still-life she did of calla lilies. The leaves are very expressive! At first, I had Patti do an exercise of working an orb and a gray scale, catching the feel of light. Patti has a wonderful hand with charcoal and is very comfortable working this medium. This piece is actually my favorite. I can just imagine it 10 times bigger! either the orb or the scale. It would be fabulous!....something you could look at for hours.
