11 Years Old

April 21, 2016

Graphite pencil study from a photograph taken 59 years ago…can someone tell me if graphite pencil should have a spray fixative put over it?

    Have you ever shown/sold your work? You have a remarkable talent!

      No, not really…just a few pieces when I was young and taking classes. Thank you so much for the comment. I think, as an artist, I am my own worst critic. I just went to the Lambeth Art Association art show and came out feeling very inspired. So I’ll keep at it. 🙂

        It would be a shame not to share your work with others.

          Thank you Margo. I have given two of them as gifts (“The Eyes” and “Big Gramp’s House”) and enjoy seeing them both hung in the houses of the recipients. I will keep working on more. Thanks again for your encouragement.
