BW Drawing on Coquille Paper Cold Press…..Graphite from 2H to 9B, 22"X30"

This was commissioned portrait of three children reading the book Green Eggs and Ham ..The children range from about 3 Years to 8 years old .
I love drawing and painting children..When I am doing a commission in order to keep them in one spot to take photos I will get them to read a book together..I have about eight minutes to capture what I need for a portrait and then I lose their attention especially if their really little. I really loved this chair as it has such a great design on it..The children are reading Green Eggs and Ham these three actually were pretty good while I did my work..This is one I thought would have looked great in color but their Mom wanted a drawing. She really was surprised with the detail I put in ..She gave this to her husband for a Christmas gift.
