The Lion~ Pencil

My pencil work has been long overdue, or at least I felt that way.
It has lost something in the photography and I've noticed that lately in the past few posts.. This piece measures 16"x20" with the mat ..

  8. I just think your pencil pieces are truly magnificent, BJ. Couple your talent with this magnificent King of the Forest and you come out with a piece that so beautifully captures the regalness of this fine beast. I love it!

  10. BJ - your pencil work on the lion is absolutely stunning - in my humble opinion graphite can be so gorgeous and you certainly know how to make it so. Take care and God Bless.
