Hello everyone, I hope you are well, first of all happy 2020 for all of you, I hope this new year will be successful for me and my family as well as for all of you. My absence from the platform was due to the fact that I had emigrated from Venezuela to Peru. I was in that country for several months but the truth is that it did not go very well, so I returned to my country of origin.
I got in touch with my best friend @roadstories who invited me to this platform a long time ago, but I had not found my way until now (according to him). A few days ago he saw one of my drawings published on my social networks and almost killed me for telling me that I had a gift for art in my hands, that I should share it with you here at Steemit, so yesterday I took one of those neoclassical stories that I like so much and inspired me to carry it out.
This is a freehand drawing, with graphite pencil making gray scales and black colors to give a depth effect to such an exceptional work.
In the opposite sense to the artist, particularly this drawing that took me 2.5 hours to make has remained this way.
