This is the first of three commission sketches in graphite of two brothers.
This one was really challenging, firstly, as I had to work from a very low quality photo and secondly the light of the subject was in shadow under a canopy with a light cast shadow. Patience has purserved as I found tones I never thought a hard pencil could go to. The detail in this particular sketch, especially on the different coloured bands of the blanket kept me real busy!
