This is quite a "tight" style combined with an unforgiving medium, and although I`m very pleased with the end result, getting there isn`t always as easy as people think! (It especially hurts my eyes!) But there`s something about the presence of black and white.....at least for me, anyway...
Between nappies, runny noses, a bored pet, running after workmen (not in the romantic sense of the word, of course!), school fair, school Christmas concerts and the general hullaballoo of family life, I am still working on other pieces (mainly watercolours and coloured pencils, but I`m not happy with the composition in 1, and will probably do it again.) Lesson learnt: make sure you`re 100% happy with the composition at the beginning! (although a lot of my work tends to evolve as I`m doing it, even if I thought I had it all worked out beforehand!) I`m also planning to do some painted "versions" of these, so hopefully that will be interesting. It will certainly keep me busy!
