BLACK HAT ... FINISHED

I'm fed up with this drawing now so calling it FINISHED and just waiting for David to put it in the frame so I can't fiddle with it any more.      I think I mentioned previously that I'm using a secondhand frame which is quite unusual in design and this was drawn specifically to fit it.    He has dismantled the frame/mount and its in pieces on my dining room table at the moment awaiting attention.

Pure coloured pencil on Dark Grey Clairefontaine Pastelmat - size is approx 15" x 20" and the overall framed size is approx 25" x 27"

The weather is so gloomy that I wasn't able to get a good photo and have manipulated the colours in this image slightly to get to what I think is a fairly accurate representation.    Amazing how difficult it can be to photograph black and/or white images isn't it?


and I finally found the button to resize some of the photos on the right side of my Blog Home page .... so simple when you know how

Thank you Sherry and Jo. I'm fed up with looking at her but might appreciate her more once she's framed and out of sight. I'm just trawling through all my ref photos looking for inspiration. I need to stick with coloured pencils for a while to get a few pictures finished in readiness for next year's exhibitions so that limits my choices a little.

Watch this space ...

really curious about how this frame looks :)

She looks really good, nice shine to her hair and you would have never know about the green incident :)

Hmmm ... maybe I've made the frame sound more exotic than it actually is. But anyway, all will be revealed in a couple of days when we have time to spend on putting it all together and hopefully the weather will be bright enough to get a decent photo ... hate these grey gloomy days (we're supposed to be enjoying Summer I thought)!

Tell you something, it's a picture I wouldn't mind having on my wall.

probably not over hyped, just curious to what it looks like since its second hand :)

Looks wonderful, Sue! You can't tell there ever was a problem with it!

We can trade some of our hot (90 degrees F and up), humid weather if you like - we could really use some rain about now and a little relief from the heat.
