2 1/4 x 8 inches.... graphite and red pencil..... 1hour 45 minutes
Thought I would try a new format. Had fun trying to capture each character.
Loved the negative shapes between the figures.
You managed to capture the expressions beautifully!
And I like the contrast between the white figures and the red background :)

Great take on the ref photo. I love your rendering/shading of the figures and how you managed to capture each person using your beautiful style of drawing. So simple to look at but I'm sure it's hard to do. I also love the red background.
Bravo! and thanks for joining the WDE this week!

Have to laugh Barbara - I'm just about to post mine and we had very similar thoughts about the ref! .... I just looked at the opposite end!:D

I just saw Maureens feet and she made reference to your heads so I spent ages trying to find them to have another look.:lol: :lol: It took me ages cause I was looking for "heads", I am so glad I finally found you cause it was well worth a second look.
