  1. Your last three posts have shown some amazing studies – brilliant ๐Ÿ™‚ !!

    • Hi Caren. I held these back hoping the sketches would lead to a marvellous finished piece. It’s not happened! I think I’m posting these in a row now to subconsciously get rid of them. Not a happy project!

      • Oh No!! That’s disappointing as all looked to be going wonderfully! These things happen though..I hope the airing gets things out of your system for new and wondrous projects though ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hopefully, many new virgin pages left in your new scrap book??!!!:-)

    great layering…I really like the way the first one changes your focus back and forth. (K)

    • Thank you Kerfe. This project did start off optimistically, but then it got stuck, laboured and dark. I’m hoping posting the lot in a row will help me sit back and reflect, then I might have another go!

  3. I love how this built up — it gives depth, literally and figuratively, to the person(ality)

    that’s really good

  5. This is very present, I like it.

  6. Aww dear! These sketches are great. If you give me permission I could include one in a post about “Self-portrait” that I plan publish next weeks. Your sketches deserve be between masterpieces. Thanks for sharing and congrats! ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’
