Birwa     22'' x 14''  pencil on paper


In consideration of the fact that drawing is a corner stone of any sort of art, I pay  close attention to it. I constantly encourage my students  to sketch as much as they can. Ultimately ,this enable them to paint what ever they need.This commissioned portrait is done with graphite pencils .If you are interested in a pencil portrait ,I will be more than happy to accept it .
