Morning Joys


Last fall I took an abstract drawing class from the talented Brian Hinkle at Tessera Fine Art Gallery in Wichita.  This is one of the charcoal sketches I did under his tutelage. I was pretty happy with this piece, so decided to turn it into a painting.

I used mainly acrylic paint, but I did end up adding some highlights with pastels. It was a lot of fun, and I am considering doing more in this style.  I now have a much greater appreciation for abstract art!

If you would like a print of this piece, you can find it in my etsy shop.  The original is currently hanging at Tessera Fine Art Gallery in Wichita.

  1. This style is great! I think you should definitely do more.

  2. Very nice! I have almost zero experience with charcoal drawings, but did you have to fixate your drawing first? xoxo

    • Yes, I sprayed a few coats of workable fixative, then painted. I painted over the charcoal lines with black acrylic also to sharpen up the lines.
