Master copy

Study of a favorite Rockwell piece. I learn something new and remember something I forgot every time I do a quick study like this.

Drawing with my son tonight and wanted to try some charcoal & white pastel pencil. It's always been frustrating to me that fixative wrecks everything it touches. I bought a new one that worked, but it cost me $20 for the can! Latour Sennelier. If it makes charcoal/ chalk/ pastel a viable medium to keep in a sketchbook, it would be worth it.

Great study. I'm a big fan of your original stuff too. I had to comment here to tell you to get spectra fix. It's a casein fixative- it works really well, non toxic, an atomizer bottle, and it does not darken or alter the pastel when it dries. Best of all worlds and it's cheap too.
