I started to continue with this piece today at about 9.30am. Now it's 2.oopm and this is as far as I have got. I have also managed to destroy one brush in completing it so far. I haven't worked at all on the body or face just doing his jeans at the mo. This is really unusual for me because I cant stand fiddley work preferring to get it done very quickly. Still I will persevere and hopefully it will be ok when I've finished. I know when I resume work on the body I am going to have to move the positioning of the left breast because that's not quite right.
I haven't been out at all today because we are having heavy snow, thank goodness I still have enough provisions in to cover us for dinner tonight. I have also just received notification that work for The Herbert Gallery Open is due in March so I now have to pick three paintings to submit for that. I hope I'm as lucky as I was for Rugby and manage to get one in there.
