The Rat Catcher WIP


This graphite drawing was inspired by an Edwin Smith black and white photo.  I have changed and added a few bits.  I have used mainly a 2B pencil on Mellotex.  When it's finished I am thinking of putting a little subtle colour into it with coloured pencil.  This bit has taken about 5 hours and the size is about 23x20cm.

We have lots of areas like this Whitstable/Tankerton (being an old fishing/smuggling area.

I love what you've done here, especially with the cobbles, and wonder whether it would be best left without colour? The artist's dilemma?

Look forward to seeing the end results whatever you decide :o)
