Still working away at this. Getting a little closer with every hour to end.
I started a little "moonlighting" project last night (shhhh, don't tell Michael!) working on a portrait. I spent two hours sketching out my outline and collapsed in a heap feeling very pleased that I had got that far. About an hour later it struck me that I had used the wrong paper. Instead of using Arches Hotpressed watercolour paper I had used Rives. I'm not sure how the graphite will take to the Rives. Trying to decide now on whether to start all over on the right paper or to just try it out on the Rives. Or maybe try using charcoal instead of graphite. I haven't done a charcoal portrait in many many years. Decisions, decisions.
