Hi there! Tonight I worked for a couple of hours on my latest study, which is getting to the point where I need to think about a title for it. The most logical choice would be the name of the beautiful young lady depicted in the piece, hmm… I decided to complete this drawing by [...]

Hi there, just a quick update on Art Every Day Month… I’ve been focusing on the study for my larger project, finally putting some color to the lines and trying out some background color washes. Have a look:
