soldier drawing by Kathrin Guenther,

A blast from the past

A WW1 soldier graphite drawing

A drawing with a difference. I was asked to draw from a very old photo. The gentleman in it was the grandfather of my client. He served in World War 1. A lot of research went into this photo because as you can imagine, the photo quality at that time wasn’t that great yet. But it was a very enjoyable journey into the past.
