After many months of work, I've finally completed my first project, a charcoal drawing:
Caesar Study 1, approx. 15 x 20 inches. Charcoal on paper.

I'm very pleased with the results. The final drawing represents about 70 hours of work.
I feel very lucky to live near the school and have the time available to take classes. It really is paying off for me.
