Calla Lily

I haven’t used charcoal in years, and after seeing a wonderful show at The Walker Art Center of drawings (most in charcoal) by Edward Hopper, many in preparation for his paintings, I was inspired to give charcoal a try.  IT IS HARD. This didn’t turn out as I had envisioned……I definitely need a lot more work with the medium……but there are some things I like.  Plus I do love calla lilies.
