Year 2011, Charcoal on Paper, 25cm x 35cm (framed with glass)
This is one of Lisa’s earliest explorations of charcoal as a medium. She enjoys capturing various facial expressions, especially soulful expression as displayed by this beautiful Mongolian girl. The background was colored entirely in black charcoal while reserving the white space for her face. Her features were carefully shaded with charcoal subsequently, reserving white for her face and highlights.
