A study of a face


Charcoal on 6x6" Bristol vellum. I thought of doing this artwork by straight out hatching and cross-hatching technique. This is one of those works when after I've done everything it still feels like something is not enough or something is not right. The big problem is, I don't quite know what it is. I guess, it is like reaching a point where my skills has been consumated and there is nowhere else for me to go. It didn't feel like I can let go off this work (or any of my works) because it's perfectly done, completed. Instead, it's dangling. Have you seen somebody staring at you and all you see on that face is a big question mark??? Believe me, right now, I am that somebody's face.
