I created this graphite drawing as an exercise to experience “composition” of a full scene. Most of my artwork is by choice portraiture without any background. It took a long time and a lot of determination to keep myself on task with this. I relied a lot on the encouragement of many kind and interested members of WetCanvas. As a work in progress it can still be viewed at http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=593265 . I thought it suited this week’s Illustration Friday Theme of Midsummer Night and thought I’d share it today as such.
