I've been taking part-time classes at The Atelier in Minneapolis for about a year and a half now, in an effort to improve my portrait work. The class work has significantly improved my work at home in my private studio.
This is a portrait of my husband:
Portrait of M by A.M. Downs
Charcoal and chalk on tinted paper, 10 x 12 inches.

Thanks for looking!
