I’ve been absent from my blog for a while now. To recap, my mum was sick, had to have an operation and is now on the mend. So, for me that means I can start to get back on with the normal things in my life, which most importantly means I get to play with pastels again. I was also back at my local art space today which was fun as I caught up with a lot of my friends there.
Drawing again means revisiting and continuing work on the drawing of St Bartholomew’s. More progress made today. I’ve added quite a bit more white as I needed to see what difference it made and can then see what else needs to be done.
I’ve gone in a little too bright in a couple of spots which I need to tone down and I can see where I need to work next to bring a few more darks in. Still not happy with the way the grass is sitting but I’ll work it out. And now sitting here looking at the photo I can see I need to add some more shadows in front of the gravestones to ground them some more.
The never-ending drawing still continues, but hopefully for not much longer…
