M-J Kelley Studio - Turn (charcoal)

Turn (charcoal)

My artistic training began with classical figurative study. My initial work was very technical and precise. However it lacked the animation of life. Recognizing that was key to making a change. I began to trust my judgment and to allow my lines to loosen. “Turn” is a good example of how I was able to retain technical proficiency while adding the quality of emotion.
