Run Forest, run!

Face no.24 of my 29 Faces for May
CHARLIE
Can't believe we have nearly finished this fabulous challenge from Ayala's Art !!!
I,gessoed, spritzed  and ink blobbed my page, and could see a partial figure...
so I rummaged through some film mags til I came across this guy, who fit the outline just about as perfectly as it could be.
He reminded me of a "treehugger" running to tie himself to a tree, at many a protest against the destruction of ancient trees. The name Charlie just seems to suit him :D
Enjoy :D XXX
