Two years ago I began taking art lessons. Fifty years ago, I had a semester in art in High School and only remember the primary colors from the class. After my second lesson, my teacher told me to bring a picture from home for a project and I selected “Captain Jack”. My husband had taken the photo of this man on Congress Street in Austin and I absolutely loved it. When I took this over to my teacher, he had so many reservations but I told him I wanted to paint it for my son’s upcoming birthday.
This was my first graphite and by the time I finished it, I had about seven lessons completed, but it was done with so much Love, I knew the hours spent on it would be worth it. Below is a photo of my drawing.
