UPDATE: This drawing was juried into the 2017 Colored Pencil Society of America Explore This! 13 Online Exhibition. This was quite an honor as only 61 pieces were selected from submissions by the international community of colored pencil artists!  Visit the CPSA online gallery at: http://cpsa.org/explorethis-13exhibition

I did this colored pencil drawing of a banjo player in a bluegrass band that was playing at Stone Mountain when we took the family to visit the park a couple years ago. The siding was a bit boring on the porch where the band was playing so I found a photo I took last weekend on our trip to the north Georgia mountains of some really dilapidated siding. Unfortunately it was on a building I help design 40 years ago for a company I used to work for! Does that make me feel old or what!!!

I also did a YouTube tutorial of the layout of the Banjo Man and a second YouTube video of the process of doing the drawing.
