26/08: DEL BOY UPDATE. Coloured Pencil on Pastelmat

This is where I'd got to at the time of my earlier post at lunchtime today ....

and with more work this afternoon on his coat and the cutlery 

It really is getting close to completion now so I've emailed my client to find out whether there are areas she wants changed and also to settle on mount size.    I intended to offer this with my 'mid sized' mount which fits a frame size 14" x 18" and would look like this - the emphasis being on his face

But I've also shown it in a larger mount which centralises the drawing.  This will fit a frame size 16" x 20".   Now I've posted this I can see that the mount would need to move to the left more ... but this is simply to illustrate the options.

So awaiting feedback :o)

So, which mat/mount did the client choose? I'm a bit on the fence about it as both have their good points.

Hi Jan
She preferred the smaller cream mount so that´s what I sent ... but I only loosely attached it to the picture so she can change her mind and substitute a larger mount-frame without too much difficulty if she wants
