An oldie but a goodie...

I did this pencil drawing 20 years ago, one of the very last things I did before my premature retirement! We call him "the Man." It's always interesting to hear who people think it is - a surprising number have asked me if were God (uh...no), or Moses. But you can see the reason I love tonal painting...it's how I drew! This is done with an ebony pencil, kneaded eraser and drawing paper.

This is absolutely fantastic! I love this close-up and all the contrasts. You are very talented and I'm so glad you are back to creating. I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful work. Welcome to EDM!

Stop by my blog and see my old man pencil drawing. :-)
