Drawn at a cafe while waiting to start work.
I am inspired by a fellow blogger who posts a picture each day. I am trying to draw at least one thing per day in my new book of ordinary things.

Sketched ideas for a canvas.

The plan is to have the background in shadow and the foreground lighter…representing the passage of time. But both characters in the piece will be highlighted to make the connection between the 2.

An exercise in shading

The original is Francisco De Zuberan black chalk and Grey wash with traces of pen and ink. Mine is 2b pencil on colored paper. It had been a while since I had done a pencil sketch so thought I would get back to basics for a change.
