No 4 in the series

charcoal on scored paper
70cm x 50cm

I decided to leave the eyes looking glass-like as I feel it gives the drawing an enigmatic quality. The faces in these recent drawings are invented, they are not portraits.  I begin from a reference point of either a drawing that I've made earlier or a photographed image, then work with the creases that I've already made in the paper. It's a fascinating process as the new face emerges from the surface.


  1. Hello Ann - I came over from Myra's blog. Love your work. Fabulous! I noticed your work when we both had a painting of a family of three, from the back, on the same day on DPW. I remember thinking how good it was. I am now a follower.

  2. Thankyou very much Julie for your comments. I appreciate them. It was a coincidence to paint and show the same subject on the same day on DPW! There are similarities too between your paintings and my drawings in the fragmentation and fracturing of the image. Looking forward to following you too!
