My Grandparents had this charcoal drawing up for years, I never really got it as a kid.
It has since changed hands and ended up in my living room and is due to change hands again. Truth be told i don’t want to see it go but its out of my hands, Which leaves me with a very large void so i decided to do a scale painting of the exact piece, Here’s how its going.. . .. . . .. .. .
