Charcoal Self-Portrait

Zak, Year 13

  • Charcoal
  • A3 portrait

In this piece I have used charcoal to create a self-portrait reflecting the complexity of human emotion. The sketchiness of the charcoal and the dark tones reflect the ambiguity of the self in adolescence, and the focus on expressive parts of the face conveys a sense of vulnerability.
