Too long

Life has been getting in the way but some events lately have made me rethink my life and that it is time to get back to work artwise.

I did join in and do the portrait swap on WetCanvas this month which was a nice break. I hope my partner, Sonja, likes what I did when she receives her portrait next month (mail willing!)

Started a large piece today in charcoal of the doorway in the last post - starting with a medium ground and erasing back to lights and adding in the darkest darks. Having trouble with the paper which I don't like at all. I hope its just a case of getting used to it as it cost a fortune and I have 24 more sheets of it.
