I've neglected to feed the blog recently so here I am catching up with a few bits from life I have done this month. I havent been hugely creative for a while but I keep plugging away at the life sessions whatever else is or isnt going on. Also, I am thinking about having a great big clear out of all my old stuff, some for a bonfire virtual or otherwise - get rid of the old and make way for the new, it could be good for the soul...

Pastel on Rives BFK 22" x 30" done over three weeks - approx 5 hours. I'm finding these long poses over several weeks bring a whole different set of challenges, when to chase the pose, the level of finish to go for at any given point. Even indoors the light changes - one thing is for sure, do the hands in one go!
