Art: Portrait of Picasso

Charcoal portrait of Picasso

Charcoal on paper – portrait of Picasso

 

This is a charcoal portrait of Pablo Picasso that I was doing. Technically, it’s a work-in-progress, but someone who saw it in this state fell in love with it and ended up buying it as-is. This isn’t the full piece; it’s actually an 18″x24″ piece, with a lot of my grid marks and pencil guidelines still in place. But the client loved it this way, and I found some poetry in the piece this way as well, given the subject matter. There’s just something fitting about a portrait of Picasso, known for his abstraction and cubism, being portrayed in an unfinished piece.
