This charcoal drawing shows dramatic lighting on the face of the artist’s son, Franklin, who is in his emerging adulthood years. The subject’s gaze is the focus of this piece, as the eyes of the portrait connect with the eyes of the viewer from multiple angles in a room. The gaze is steady and inquisitive, with a balance of youth and emerging adulthood.
