photo side view of MarkTumber working on a commissioned drawing

In Honey Harbour, Ontario this morning, from my visit to the art sale show. Mark Tumber, artist and teacher.

Mark is using a white blending stick to graphite he has already laid down on the page. He uses 2B B H and 2H pencils, blending sticks and eraser to create photorealistic pencil drawings of people, wildlife, architecture, and other scenes. He teaches drawing and does commission work.

I took two pencil drawing courses from Mark
great artist and articulate, effective teacher, he offers courses based in Barrie, Ontario
