Artist's Description

Commisioned Portrait
This one is the rose between the thorns of commisions I’ve done recently. I really enjoyed this one, purely because the photo i was given was of extremely good clarity and character.
The photo always makes the drawing.
This took me about three weeks to do total, but I had to stop halfway through and do a rushed commisioned piece that i didn’t really enjoy all that much. This was a pleasure to come back to!
I personally want to thank my darling Claire for giving me the space required to finish this, a gracious gesture considering we are a very new couple, and are absolutely captivated by each other. Time apart can be agony.
Completed 20th of May, 2009
Graphite mechanical pencils 3H, HB, 2B.
Paper stump and tissues for blending, kneadable eraser for white detail.
