Old Wrinkly Finished, Framed and at the Exhibition...




After almost 50 hours, Old Wrinkly is finished, it has also been framed and delivered to the exhibition, which opens on the 19th of June at the Nottingham Society of Artist Gallery, on Friar Lane Near Nottingham Castle. the actual Drawing is 16.5 x 20.5 inches, drawn as always on Mellotex paper, tools used where 2h, HB 2b, and 6b pencils, blending tool, eraser, and putty rubber for the highlights. it seem strange not to see this on my drawing board waiting to be worked on, but it was good to see it completed, oh well onto the next piece ( and I guarantee its going to be smaller)!
