I did this drawing for my brother's first Anniversary gift from his wife (paper). I can't take credit for this wonderful composition, that would be the photographer's skill. Johnny's best man, Mike did their photos and captured the day beautifully. This photo I especially liked and I guess so did his wife. I used Mike's beautiful color photo to draw the 16" x 11" charcoal on gray paper. I also worked in the shadows with dark blue, umber and red pastel pencils. I loved doing the hair on both of them and Johnny's seersucker suit - FUN (the best part got hidden under the mat).

This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
