The life promised...that never came...

Mixed-media... Charcoal and water colour

Size: 56X75

This is done on a paper that I bought for water-colour paintings, but its water-absorbing capability is pathetic... now trying to get rid of them somehow... so started scribbling with a charcoal chalk... did not care to add any details...just the form and the tonal values... it was done in approx 2 hours...

Perhaps my first attempt at something that is not realism in the true sense... and at mixed-media too!

Hope you like it! Suggestions welcome... I need to learn more of this stuff!!
