More on "Comfort Zone"

I've been putting in long hours on this grisaille - benefits of having a week off work! Also putting together thumbnails to try to work out the problems I am having with the painting. Huge learning process on both. I begin to long for colour and tomorrow plan to have a day of doing pastels for respite.
