A painting can be a mirror to our soul and to pause and gaze at the reflection is not vanity.
I love your pencils. They have such a nice, soft quality that conveys depth and atmosphere. The bottom one is my favorite of the two for the wonderful reflection that leads my eye into the drawing.
Thank you Jeremy. I just noticed for the first time yesterday tha all reflections point toward the viewer. I never noticed that before but when I saw it, it seemed so painfully obvious. I learned alot from these drawings.
