I am on a quest to draw every LDS temple around the world. It is a big goal since there are currently over 130 temples world-wide and each temple will probably take me over a month. Because I grew up in Idaho Falls, I chose to start my quest with the Idaho Falls temple. I started this drawing in the middle of December and didn't finish until the middle of February. When I go around selling my drawings, one of the most common questions I am asked is, "how much time did that take you?" Most drawings take me around 25 hours to accomplish but this drawing took me around 75 hours. I chose to use a cream colored board to draw on because every drawing I have seen of LDS temples are drawn on white paper and I never thought it was a good idea to draw a white temple on white paper. I thought it would be more powerful to add white accents by using white charcoal. Do you agree with my choice in style? I would like to hear feedback from you. If you are interested in this drawing, I will have prints available soon.
