Hi I qualified and worked as an Architect in Manchester UK and have always had a strong interest in drawing and illustration. Over the last couple of years I've started to produce a series of freely drawn, expressive figure drawings. They are mostly in charcoal as this allows a fast intuitive response to the subject.

Charcoal is also a versatile medium. While you can create extremely realistic, sensitive drawings with it, there is something about picking up that dusty stump of charcoal that frees us to go big, expressive and gestural. Charcoal is used much the same way as a pencil. It lets you get more expressive and work larger without getting stuck in details.

Art experts may have solved a riddle that has been baffling them for years: whether a drawing of a nude woman, bearing a striking resemblance to the Mona Lisa, is a Leonardo da Vinci original. Following extensive testing, investigators from the Center for Research and Restoration of the Museums of France C2RMF say the charcoal drawing, known as the "Monna Vanna" or "Nude Mona Lisa," was completed in da Vinci's studio and may have been the work of the master himself. The drawing was previously thought to have been completed by da Vinci's students.
The drawing is a charcoal sketch on watercolor paper, and features Lady Gaga reclining nude, signed by "Benedetto," the name Bennett signs all his art works with. The year-old jazz singer, who earlier this year recorded "Lady is a Tramp" in a duet with Lady Gaga for his album "Duets II," posted on Twitter that he was "thrilled" his portrait was up for auction. Bennett, 85, sketched the picture while Lady Gaga, 25, posed for photographer Annie Leibovitz for the cover of Vanity Fair magazine's January issue.
