I'm helping Val out this month – Brian (scouserl41)

Post your drawing for February 2018 Challenge here.

1/ Post only one drawing per person. Post only your finished drawing. If you need help, post it in the encourager section.

2/ Do your best to keep your entry as close as possible to the original Challenge photo. Please DO NOT make additions to the subject unless otherwise stated. We try to maintain a fair and equal field for all entries from beginner to advanced.
Feel free to use the subject photos in your own creation BUT place it in the Encourager section, NOT in the challenge. Thank you for your ongoing support of these challenges.

3/ Any SINGLE dry drawing medium may be used....Graphite, Coloured Pencil (lead), Charcoal, or Ink may be used. If it is not specifically listed, DON'T USE IT! If you are unsure, PM me directly.

4/ When posting your entry, please list type of pencil used. Not mandatory, but appreciated as it may help someone with less experience.   

5/ HAVE FUN ! Brian.

I better be the first in this month seeing that it's my original photo!
The picture was taken in Tavenier Florida
The drawing is 9 x 12 on recycled paper using a combination of Staedler, Prismacolor and some  cheap colored pencils.
