Above ALL else ~ Guard your Heart
for it is the Wellspring of Life.
hmmm . . . . .
Graphite drawing 15 × 20″ on hot press illustration board.
Hands need more development. Need that 4:00 clock North light to shoot good quality pix and I missed it.
ahh rats!! it’s not like just baking muffins you know. Ha haaa. These drawings always take their sweet time and some parts go quick and some parts are . . . so . . . . flipping . . . flapping . . . crazy making . . slow. A dear friend of mine once said – “it’s like waiting for a baby to be born”. yeah kinda is. :))
As a side note:
My students enjoyed seeing the beginning of this drawing and want to see how it turned out. I was telling them, the reference photos are a guide, a starting point to build off of. Here is the shot I took for this piece and you can see the facial expression is more exaggerated in the drawing. The rest of the elements came slowly as I was working on this. Thanks for taking time to view.
