Adam  works as a thatcher, but  for several years has been a charcoal burner in the Dorset woods.

Although I began drawing him in red chalk  that didnt work and I suddenly thought of the obvious - charcoal.....!    I hope he comes back for another session or two,  I may do a painting if we have time

It is a long time since I have done any portraits - too long.  If anyone reading this would like to come and pose please get in touch- we can negotiate over terms.
