Watersoluble graphite on 18" x 24" newsprint of Tim (my grandson) and Carrie. The reference photo I am using was taken Christmas, 2007, with them sitting on the stairs. So I moved them closer together using Photoshop.
Some areas (well, several areas) need reworking, like Tim's right eye is too dark and Carrie's neck is a little too long. Carrie's hair beneath her chin is actually hiding part of her neck.
Next, I will use a regular graphite pencil and use a grid to draw a working sketch for painting.
Tim and Carrie will exchange wedding vows in July.
