18 x 24 charcoal on paper
Last week I finished my first semester in Graduate School at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. AMAZING! I am totally inspired to take my technique to the next level. This piece is the final project for one of my classes with instructor Zack Zdrale,
The 6 hour class was beautifully challenging and I would love to do more work in this style now that I am comfortable with charcoal.
