Alexander Bell, still WIP

Alexander Graham Bell (March 3, 1847 – August 2, 1922) was a Scottish-born American inventor, scientist, and engineer who is credited with inventing and patenting the first practical telephone. He also founded the American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T) in 1885.
This work was being done on a Canford gray paper, 15x20. Pan pastel, General charcoal pencils, and white chalks are being used. The BG may need some refinements but it is almost done. BTW, Canford paper is great for this kind of work but is no longer available. I only have few more papers left.

Another fine addition to the scientific gallery. What a great beard that is! And how well you have rendered it.

Thank you Harry. The beard took longer that I thought. I am working on the background now and it should be finished soon.
