'Self portrait' 12”x 14” charcoal on Strathmore Drawing 400 Series
I normally don’t draw a lot of self-portraits, but this photo means a lot to me. The photo was taken right after boot camp in Great Lakes, IL. I always appreciate looking back at the good memories I have being enlisted in the Navy and having the opportunity to serve my country.
This sketch was done with charcoal but I normally work with graphite, charcoal give me the opportunity to work negative and positive.
I’m very happy with the likeness although I have drawn and painted this photo before.
