This is a pencil drawing of my great uncle, Jack. The original photo (I don't know who took it...) is one of my favorites because it captures the essence of this kind and wise man. My focus was Jack's face and I think I got that pretty close. I wish the little cow on the left was not so dark, but as I relearned today, in pencil you have to start light and gradually add the dark because going from dark to light is not recommended. Sometimes it isn't even possible. : )
