I've done a little more work on the portrait of my grand daughter. I wish now that I used a darker paper to provide some additional contrast. This paper is sand coloured and matches too closely her pale skin and hair.
But no going back now. I have another portrait in the pipeline that I must transfer today sometime. With a snowstorm brewing for tomorrow, I'll get some chores done today then cocoon in my studio tomorrow and draw.
I also wanted to fit in some more painting and had bought a handful of 6 x 12 gallery canvasses. I love these long thin canvasses and love even more the fact that I don't have to get them framed. You can see what I produced at Watermarks.
