This one has been occupying my easel and developing very slowly over the last few weeks!
Life has been so hectic for me lately that I have struggled to find enough time to settle and work on it.
Although I enjoy graphite I find it very labourious and time consuming, taking many, many layers to build up the various depths of tone and I am not good at leaving and coming back to work on a drawing without losing motivation, I like rapid results and guess thats why I enjoy working with pastels so much.
All's well that ends well though and today I managed to shut myself away with a handful of motivation and finally completed this one..........phew!
Now I have an empty easel just waiting for a new occupant, looking forward to tomorrow :-)
