Another portrait made with Caran D'Ache Grafstone 6B crayons.
Sized 40x60cm, on paper.

'Boy', Caran D'Ache Grafstone crayon 6B

I posted a study for this work earlier in my blog.
This is the final drawing made with Caran D'Ache Grafstone crayons (6B) on paper. Size: about 40x60 cm.
I actually bought the total supply of Grafstone 6B crayons at my regular art supply shop a few weeks ago. I'm crazy about this material. They were glad to sell it to me, as most customers apparently buy cheaper brands. I've tried them too but they're 'scratchy', while my Grafstone just rolls across the paper.

I am really pleased with this result. I still feel it needs to be part of a larger setting, or a series of drawings. After all....what is he looking at...? There must be something in front of him, maybe far away at the horizon...?
