I've made a small update on the portrait of Kiora, but have been sidetracked doing other things today. At least this photo gives a better image and truer colours in daylight.
Its been a snowy day here with a pretty large dump of the white stuff on the ground. For a change, it didn't turn to rain, which it often does. At least now there's time to clear it away and avoid an early morning rush to do so. With a 250 foot driveway and a turning circle, it takes a bit of time to do, even with the plow on the tractor, especially when its 10 inches deep!
I've spent today trying to make some inroads into my sketchbook project and now have just 4 pages left to go then I can pop it in the mail to join the others that will tour around some of the USA galleries and museums. I had a look at the Sketchbook Project website and the quality of some of the sketchbooks is amazing. Mine seems quite modest in comparison.
As promised to Dermott, I did include a sketch of him in the book. What a tongue that dog has!
I also made a start on the February portrait for our Portrait Study group. Its a challenging one, but great fun to do. Once I finish my grand daughter's portrait, I have another one in the wings and will continue to work on that as well as the portrait study piece.
Multitasking seems the norm for me in all areas of life. Why should art be any different?
