drawing of Laura Anna Genné.

Drawing study for a painting idea that I'm working on. General's Charcoal(all grades), Stabilo CarbOthello 1400/700 pencil, and General's white chalk pencil, on a warm German Hahnemuhle Ingress paper. Very thin and rough textured paper but it has a life to it when you breakdown the fibers, not sure if I'll use it again, but I'm going to head over to NY Central's paper department later this week to research some different types of paper to play around with. This is just under life sized.

You are such a gifted artist although I know that gifted also means you put a lot of work into each of your masterpieces.

When this came up on my screen I frozze, my jaw dropped, and all I could do is just stare." Incredible, David.

Man.. this is gorgeous. Any chance you could go a little into how you approach drawing in hair? I'm intrigued.

Totally awesome drawing man, makes me want to step away from the paint for a while.

I love all the textures, so very soft! The baby looks so tender i almost would expect him to jump w/ dream movement, and the womans cleavage looks real w/ the almost see through tank on, but her hair is what is amazing. Like she just went to the salon!
Wow!

Great drawings and paintings. As a student at The Bridge Academy in Utah I was told by one of my instructors to check your work out. I'm glad I did! Thanks for keeping us all updated... Do you mind if I ask how long this drawing took? I've always been impressed by the fresh marks you somehow keep in a drawing this developed. Thanks again!

Just respect David!

I love how moody and mysterious this piece is. There's a beautiful smokiness about this painting. The shading in this picture is elegant. The woman is very pensive and seems to be lost in thought.

Gorgeous, man. Glad this is the image you used on the card you gave me. :)
