Just completed 'The Stare'. It was drawn on Mellotex paper and then mounted onto a cradled wooden panel. I used 3B 6B and 2H pencils and the background was done using a large graphite block (Derwent) Size: 50cms x 40cms.

Pat crossed over the rainbow bridge recently and left his family very upset. This picture was commissioned for the husband as a Christmas present and for the family to remember him by.

I am safe to post this as they don't really do computers so very unlikely that it will be seen.

This is my contribution to the Strathmore Pass the Journal project. Starthmore the paper manufacturers, are sending a number of journals around the world to artists to fill in. Each artist has a double page to use for whatever subject or medium they choose. This is my contribution. Reference photo by Gary Jones with thanks.

I cant believe how long it's been since my last post.
This is my most recent drawing. I wanted to achieve something with some dramatic lighting using graphite. The uneven background is not quite so obvious in the original, the scanner has accentuated some marks etc which you do not see.
I intend to mount it onto a cradled wooden panel, so no frame needed.
Graphite pencil 3B, XL Derwent graphite block and graphite dust.
Support: Mellotex paper
Title: Moon Shadow
