"RD and Patricia"
Pen and Ink
11 x 14 inches



"RD and Patricia" was commissioned as a part of a series of pen and ink drawings.

This series of drawings consist of three separate drawings of the subject in period Civil War costume, one in current military uniform and one drawing combining two older photos.

This pen and ink is a rendering of the fifth in the series of drawings. The rendering was completed using two photos supplied by the client.

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

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

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



The combination of two photos used as a guide in completion
of this artwork. These photos were supplied by the client.
