This is a selection from a series of drawings I've been working on and off on for many years now. They're charcoal on Waterford paper, 22" x 30". After I've layed down the charcoal, I spray the drawing with skim milk, this makes all of the pieces of charcoal stick together. This is how Degas used to spray his pastels back in the 1800s. Since there is no fat in the milk, the solution remains archival. It can get a bit messy while working. I thought I'd put these up since Leo brought up the subject of personal work recently. The title of the series comes from the mix of materials, charcoal and milk (Carbón con Leche).
