Happy Herr Luther

I wanted to do a master copy of a portrait of Martin Luther.  It is not a very like copy.  LOL!  In the original painting, he is rather stern.  I thought I made him look a little happier.  My previous master copies have been more of paintings with charcoal.  This one is more of a drawing with pencils.

This is a very small drawing.  I usually make bigger ones.  This is 7×10 charcoal on grey paper.

Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave. — Martin Luther
