Walt Whitman, pencil drawing by Kirk Witmer

Pencil portrait - 9x12" on 100lb Bristol vellum
American poet Walt Whitman (1819–92) Author of "Leaves of Grass"

This is my fourth pencil portrait. The source photo is known to be one of several taken of Whitman at the time, but he chose this pose as his favorite.
