My son asked me to do a charcoal drawing from a photo by photographer Deanna Hampton.. Deanna did most of the work, it's her composition and she captured the lighting. I worked from her image to turn it into a charcoal drawing on toned blue gray paper (this photo does not show the true colors). It was a gift to my daughter in law for her birthday today. Yes, those are my beautiful grandchildren. Below are some photos of the process I used. Also, Deanna Hampton also does photography workshops! http://www.deanna-hampton.com/#new-page-2
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.
