Waiting for You by Paul-Shanghai Waiting for You by Paul-Shanghai
The title and reference for this drawing comes from a very talented Italian photographer Rossano Rinaldi 500px.com/eurossphotography/ab… and you can see more of his wonderful work here 500px.com/eurossphotography

Drawn on A3 Bristol Board Smooth paper over about 15 hours, using my usual colection of traditional and mechanical pencils, erasers and blending stumps.

Interested in pictures with reflections, and/or mirros/glass that distort the image - so maybe see a few more of this type of work over the next few months.

I enjoyed drawing it - let me know if you enjoy looking at it :)

Very nicely done. The reflection idea will be interesting to see what comes of it. They are a bit harder to do.

It is so hard not to fill in all the gaps, and almost like drawing two portraits at once - lots of fun though :)

That it is--both two portraits in one and fun.  :)
