The Nap

by Vicki Jenkins
(Clarksdale, MS 38720)

This was done on 9 X 12 Bristol, using graphite and charcoal. Drawing is from a digital photo of my grandson and his dog, enjoying a mutual nap. There was a lot of detail involved, which took a little time. It was a fun and learning experience.

I've viewed all your work here in the drawing gallery. Excellent rendering technique and composition. I have an MFA in Theatre and to quote one of my professors, "I know a lot about art, I just don't know what I like!" Well, now I know what I like. You could hang your shingle out as a portrait artist and do well.

My best,

Marty

I hesitate to say this as I am a long way from doing what you can ..but the arm seems to be placed on the blanket rather than coming out of it . everything else has a wonderful flow to it and the child's face is awesome .
