Sometimes no matter how much you like your subject or how you try to portray it, it just doesn't work out. I just don't like how this turned out because I wasn't as successful as I was with the first piece. Sometimes a good piece wasn't meant to be duplicated. I'm posting this anyway because when I started this blog I made a decision that I would post the bad along with the good. Actually, I like the clover leaf coin much better than the star. I should just photoshop the star out, but it seems a lot of work for something I'm just not feeling the love for. So, there it is. I'm done. Going to go work on my color WIP for a while. Charcoal, graphite and 2B pencil on Strathmore paper. 5.5 x 6.5 inches.
