Color Sketch

Abdul H.
Pen, ink, and pastel on toned paper
12"x10"

This past week, a box with my art supplies finally arrived.  I broke out my pastels, drawing pen, and toned paper today to see what would happen.  Well, this is what happened.  This gent is one of the elders in our district.  I worked from a photo this time, in contrast to my pen and pencil sketches, which are almost all done from life.  I think it turned out pretty well.  It sure was fun working with color again!
