Receiving beauty from the antics of a Child


This Glorious sketching, is a sketching of a great writer and essayist (G. K. Chesterton) receiving a dandelion from a little girl (we don't know her name). The image of the 'Receiving beauty from the antics of a Child' (what I Like to call it) is one of G. K. Chesterton's most famous images which took me eight days to accomplish with paper, blending stumps, and charcoal.
This was the first time I ever drew a backroad in my sketching's which made this project very tedious and intricate. (especially for the design of the bricks. bleh...) My favorite part about this sketching is the dress of the little child which was so lovely simple but so important for the meaning of the picture (Which I tried to sum up by the name I gave it.)

The original picture is now currently displayed on a 'Chesterton bookshelf' in the house I am living in.
