Had a lazy day today ... think I'm starting a cold as I have a sore throat and general 'thick head' so haven't attempted anything strenuous like mowing wet grass or sweeping up fallen leaves - both jobs are overdue but will keep!
The black lab portrait has been packed up ready for despatch tomorrow.
The Lapphund portrait mounted and framed ... I'll be hand delivering this one - meeting the client mid way between his place and mine - he's in Sussex - I'm in Kent, approx 90 miles apart.
Here's the first 'work in progress' picture of a portrait I hadn't expected to start till after Christmas .. but things have changed and I've brought this one forward a bit ....
Pastels on light grey Clairefontaine Pastelmat:
the light grey pastelmat paper is very light grey and not as blue as it appears here .... when the portrait is more advanced I'll try scanning it to show the colours more accurately. This is really just to prove I'm not wallowing in self-pity with 'man-flu' ...... :-)
