Charcoal Portraits

Re: Charcoal Portraits

Charcoal is the oldest of drawing mediums, with charcoal portraits proudly hanging in museums throughout the world. “Charcoal is as close as you can get to painting without painting,” says Tim. It’s an amazing medium, lending itself to a very intuitive process. It has a wonderful range of values, and unlike pencil, is at home in the hands of a painter.

“I love how charcoal boils down the portrait its essence, similar to black-and-white photography. Nothing gets in the way of capturing my subject. There is a regality to its raw truth. Charcoal demands the artist's command of drawing."

Like his oils and pastels, Tim’s charcoals are archival-quality, and will last indefinitely with proper care.
