Original and prints not for sale

"Clementine" was a commission done for Father's Day. It portrays a beautiful scene of a young girl and her grandfather birdwatching. At first, creating variations of shades and different tones was difficult with the soft lead pencil, but eventually, I was able to create a wide range of shadows and tones. Although there is not much detail in the sketch itself, there is a focal point on the two subjects and the birds.
