The Bride

The Bride is the largest colored pencil drawing I ever did. The image is 40" x 55". It took quite awhile to draw. I had it on an easel and did a lot of cross hatching, I worked at it as I would a painting. It was quite the job. I won a National Award for this drawing.
It's mighty cold out, everyone stay warm.
