Graphite pencil on paper
14" x 12"
Just completed this drawing which took me about 32 hours in all.This is a picture of a laborer from India, my friend and a talented photographer  Vikram Raghuvanshi very kindly allowed me to use this as reference.
I liked the way his face shows the hardships of his humble life.
