"Colonel Dearing"
Pen and Ink
11 x 14 inches



"Colonel Dearing" was commissioned as a part of a series of pen and ink drawings.

The series consists of three separate drawings of the subject in period Civil War costume as well as current military uniform.

This pen and ink is a rendering of the third of a series of drawings. The rendering was completed using a photo supplied by the client.

This study in pen and ink techniques was completed in June 2007.

Extensive use of stippling effects combined with some line art was used to create a dramatic finished portrait of "Colonel Dearing".

The work took 13 hours to complete and measures about 8 1/2 x 11 inches on an 11 x 14 background.



The "Colonel Dearing" photo used as a guide in completion of
this artwork. This photo was supplied by the client.
