Charcoal drawings

Sketches from photographs taken using charcoal. Once I had finished each drawing I wanted to manipulate the image in order to alter its appearance similarly to a blurred reflection. I created this effect by smudging the charcoal in opposite directions using my hand or a cloth. The cloth took more of the charcoal off the page leaving a more faint image in comparison to the one smudged with just my hand. This effect helps to enhance the notion of the gaze being unclear and not totally visible.
