Isabella is a beautiful model and fun to paint. For this sitting she wore a lovely colorful scarf that enhanced her warm skin tones.

Portrait Sketch In Charcoal
When drawing with charcoal there is no "color" to distract. The focus is on values, simply black/white and all shades of gray in between. It's good practice for an oil painter to draw from life in an effort to improve values comprehension. Ian was an excellent subject.
