May Ray Study With Charcoal

One of my favorite photographers is May Ray.  His portraits included a technique of solarized images where a line traced along the contours of the person’s face.

Here’s my homage to his work that I did on charcoal or pencil.


Self portrait of Man Ray


Another photograph by Man Ray.  I like the hair but the jawline is a bit off.  I tried drawing the hands as well, but erased it.
