Charcoal Sketch_ Bearded Man

Inspiration struck late at night! I sketched this on toned paper, using white charcoal pencil for highlights- working from 10 pm till 12 pm, just after I posted the flowers.
For ages I have wanted to do this...Not a detailed one, but at least its a start. More to come...hopefully.
