A white pencil on black paper drawing is a departure from the "traditional" method of drawing in many ways. It requires a different way...

NLCC Cadet
I met this Cadet while visiting Orillia, Ontario, Canada, with family. She was in front of the Mariposa Market doing an annual fundraiser for the Navy League Cadet Corps. She answered my questions about the NLCC, why she joined, and what the future might have in store for her. Because I lost the notes of my interview I called and sent an image of the drawing to the Commanding Officer so the Cadet could be identified and delivery made. That's when I found out her sister, also a Cadet, is an identical twin!

N.L.C.C. Orillia is open for any child between 9-13.  It is a group where kids are taught the basics of Canadian Naval Traditions, as well as parade drill, citizenship, seamanship, sailing and much more. It instills a level of self confidence, self discipline and respect for themselves and others.

A small plot twist - I started making arrangements for the delivery to the NLCC post. When I spoke with the Commanding Officer I asked who the Cadet was, explaining I had lost my notes. He said the portrait is a good likeness, but he would have to check with the mother of the Cadet. She's an identical twin!

I started out drawing stick figures when I was a little kid, just like everybody else. When I was 12 I took a group art class. Steve Pugsley was the instructor. I remember really liking the "follow the edge of the object" drawing exercise. In high school I was the year book photographer for three years. I might have taken an art class but I can't say for sure. In college I had one art class that involved graphite, ink, and acrylic paint mediums. My classmates and instructor said I should change my major but I stayed with health sciences. 27 years later I took Drawing & Composition I at the local community college -- just to see what it was like. I was hooked and took Drawing & Composition II followed by Life Drawing. I haven't had time to take anymore classes in the last four years. I have a pretty rough work schedule now, 40-60 hours a week and I work out of town a lot, but I try and fit in portraits when ever I can. Some are commissions, some are family or acquaintances. At first, I couldn't draw for more than two hours at a time before my brain became mush. Now I can work on a drawing for up to nine hours. Time just stops, it doesn't exist when I draw. I think this is a good sign.

I took at look at your favorite folder and it is astonishing how far people can go with just black and white. Your works are also amazing and I can sense the amount of time it took to draw them. Made me think how much better my drawings could be if I spent more time on them.
