The rain came and stayed and really dampened any urge I may have had to peek outside.
Instead, like a turtle, I have stayed curled up in my studio and spent some quality time with Anton.
Here for you viewing are a few more steps into our new relationship.
I am using Hahnemuehler Nostalgie paper and my clutch pencil filled with 2B and 3B Staedler.
The three steps above show how I am working out the lay of the hair on the side of his nose as well as trying to achieve depth. I have still a detail layer to add to his nose. I will do this after establishing the rest of his face and eye.
Cheerio for now, I'm back up to the studio for another session with my new gorgeous friend...
