ackoff artwork - lewis chess king detail

Detail (enlarged)

This drawing is of the Lewis Chess King, which you may know from the Harry Potter movies. I became familiar with it when visiting the British Museum in London.

When I apply the ground, I do not sand or smooth the surface, as I like the brush strokes to be visible. It adds texture and interest to the drawing.
