Amy Winehouse Charcoal drawing

Hey everyone, 
Today i'm sharing with you a charcoal drawing of Amy Winehouse. I've been meaning to do this one for a while. I used a combination of charcoal sticks and a charcoal pencil and completed it in about half an hour. My next assignment will be to get a good sketch pad. I used the worst paper ever and it made blending really difficult. 
Below are two photos, one slightly closer up than the other. Hope you like. Comment below this post.

Old Board House. Water colour painting.

I gave water colour paint a second try. This one isn't yet finished but I thought I'd post it anyway to show progress. It is of an old, wooden house located in a beautiful place called Mayaro. I plan to go over this painting and do a few glazes to brighten up some of the areas. As it is now, the painting looks rather washed out. Though it's always an option to just do one layer of paint, I think adding layers may truly add character to this particular painting. Comments Welcome!

Chalk Pastel Art

I'm back!
Did you miss me? Anyway, today I have for you, a study that I did of a perfume bottle. I used a different kind of paper this time. I honestly don't know the name of it (someone gave it to me, what's new?). What I like about this paper, is the little specs of glitter that appear all over, adding to the sparkly-ness of the completed work (perfume=sparkles). I chose black because I thought of my own situation where I only use perfume at night... Cheesy? Oh well. So, I used chalk pastels as the medium and sprayed lots of fixative, maybe too much. Take a look and tell me what you think. Comments are welcome!
