Hidden in a pile of old sketches I found this drawing in pen and ink. I made it several years ago, based on a painting made by the American artist Thomas Blackshear. According to the notes I made on the back of this drawing I've worked more than two months on it, with a 0.18 technical drawing pen.
I didn't find any print of Blackhear's painting I've based this drawing on so far, not in the pile of sketches nor on the internet. So I can't judge the result. I only know that I won't make much drawings like this one anymore nowadays. This technique is very time consuming and I don't have that much time/patience, let alone the fact that I was single back than...;-)
