"I do this because I love it"
Who am I?
Hi - I'm Carl and I'm an artist based in Cheshire in the UK.
I've been drawing for as long as I can remember and I love it. Drawing people and figures has always interested me most - from facial expressions to body language, it's amazing how moving a couple of lines can have such a big impact on what a drawing says about a person.
What do I do?
All of my work is completed in charcoal on high quality, heavyweight papers. Charcoal is such a great medium, offering truly deep darks whilst still allowing a very light touch to be applied in the fine highlights - like in the sleeve of the wedding dress above. That's one of my favourite parts of that drawing.
In fact, wedding artwork has become a speciality of mine. It all started with drawing from photographs of my own wedding and has continued ever since. It represents everything I love about drawing people and it is incredbily rewarding to capture such an important time in someone's life..
