Graphite Drawing of "The Apartment" by Amy Crehore

I did this graphite drawing of "The Apartment" a couple of months ago. (©Amy Crehore 2020) Actual image size is 13 7/8" x 17 3/8" (it is drawn on a piece of larger 18" x 24" 250 GSM, Acid Free, 100% Cotton Stonehenge White Paper so there is a white border around the whole thing). You might remember the oil painting of the same name that I did for my "Bathers, Buskers and Cats" solo show last November at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. This drawing was challenging for me and took me a long time. I usually just do preliminary sketches (line drawings) before I paint, but I am trying new approaches to drawing, so I made this drawing afterwards from my original painted image.
