Here is Past to Present.
There will always be a gap between generations. This is normal and healthy.
Past & present shows how much trust, respect, confidence, understanding and strength can be achieved by bridging generations.
I loved drawing this piece.
Many reasons spring to mind (new territory, new subject, new challenge, new approach...)
However, the main reason has to be (symbolism aside) rendering three totally different textures: hair, cotton and skin.
I used a 2B, 5B (for the dark jeans) and F (for skin). The T-shirt I will admit was rendered by blending 2B which I then layered with F to get the smoothed crushed feeling. The paper used was Mellotex a very thick smooth white paper.
I'm glad I found the TLC this piece needed last week.
Now: it's back to gorgeous 4 legged subjects.
Cheers for now

Finished, proud and relieved.
Gentle Tom was not a one off , Quality Time is the follow up to working out of my comfort zone.
This latest drawing is a little piece I have done on the side...I felt I had done really well with the commission work and allowed myself a little treat.
Quality Time is the result. It has taken 10 days to complete and roughly 50 hours and a whole load of ups and downs. (Must admit that at one point it was steely determination that kept me going...!)
At the end of the day, there must have been more ups because I can't wait to get cracking on my next project.
