Drawing on Fabric

OK, this is my first attempt, but I'm so excited. I'm so happy to have pushed myself.


This is the first stage in a monochromatic quilt challenge. The whole quilt will be 15 x 24". This piece is 7 x 12". All sketches will  be in this combination of pen and oil paint stick. The couple are my grandparents in their wedding picture from 1907. I see some tweaking that needs to be done, so I'll get to it. I could redo the whole piece, but I only have so much fabric. Part of the challenge! There are several more sketches that will be included. BUT, I have taken the first step and it is big for me.
