myra tear down those walls . . . part 2

These are actually the third and fourth sketches I did while standing (I'm a professional sitter) with the paper taped on the wall.  As you can see - compared with the previous post - I have gained a little more mastery of the charcoal.  I thought about Lisa G. when I was doing this piece (she has inspired me to try mixed media). I thought that it would make a nice mixed media piece if I glued strips of  tissue on the left side and then painted it - giving it some texture.  But alas - no glue in the house.  So - off to the pizza palace - I mean the salad barre - I mean the art supply store.

I think the top one is simply stunning. You are certainly wonderful using charcoal - I love the tiny bit of smudging!
