Sketch using graphite pencil. I will post an updated picture once completed.
Italians love weddings and traditional Italian weddings always include a Wedding Tableau which outlines the seating plans for the invited guests. It is a beautiful tradition and when some good friends asked me to create a Tableau for their wedding last year I could not resist giving it a go. 

Th entire Tableau was hand made which included:
 - Roses were individually made using Crepe Paper.
- Window frames were made of wood and cardboard with plastic windows. 
- Special paste was added to the wooden surface to create a wall effect and then it was finally painted. 
- The figurines were made using modeling paste and then oven cooked to strengthen. 

For more photos refer to the Past Works tab. 

Sketch and original side by side. This drawing was made using charcoal. 
Below are some sketches I have been working on in this case of an old man.
