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.
