Black and White Conte Studies

Here are a couple new caricature charcoal/conte studies on toned paper. I'm trying out some paper for the upcoming ISCA Convention in Las Vegas. The Darwin sketch was done on Canson smooth paper, and the Poe was done on handmade rag paper I found at one of the local art stores. I liked the irregular surface, but it was difficult to work on.

I'll probably just stick with pen and ink/watercolor and oil painting for the con though. Dry mediums like this are great. But , depending on the surface, it can feel like you're fighting with the paper to get a tone to stick to it. Painting is much easier on the hands.
