Expressive Charcoal Portrait Drawings

Plenty of beautiful expressions teased out in charcoal drawings.

American Artist Jie Gaoart lists under Software skills: "Charcoal." Love that.

There are so many things I like about these portraits. I mentioned above the expressions. The range from subtle ones, to completely out in the open and fully formed ones.

Then there are the details like: glasses, moustaches, hats, beards, which add to the face of the wearer.

A playful mixture between realistic, sketch plus, stylised manner in the way we look and the items we wear.

A fantastic choice of subject, a mastery of drawing in this medium, will sees Gaoart's work hold your interest throughout the page. Up to and including the last image.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
