Sheba is Underway
The excitement begins, it is always exciting when the planning is done and I can dig in and work. Time disappears and graphite flows. At this point Sheba doesn’t look like much as I am just starting to build the values. But I know that once I get a few darks in there the lights will bring her to life.
At this stage I am just feeling my way around, discovering how I will create different effects and learning things about my subject. It is often hard to step back at this point as I want to do one more thing before I leave it for the day: fix a spot, put another layer on, lighten something or study it to see how things are going. I often get into real trouble with the family as my two minutes more can turn into lots of time!!
