Portraits and Figures

Drawings: Trois Crayon and Charcoal 

Trois Crayon is Red chalk and or black and white chalk on toned paper  used by the old masters. Textures and layers are effective to achieve tonal value.

The Charcoal Series  are about my parents living in Nepal in the 1950's before Communism. My father was one of two Doctors invited to solve the malaria crisis and smallpox epidemic.
