Done!


Just awaiting a spray fixitive to finish and protect the piece.   Hopefully the fixitive won't change the colours too drastically.  Sometimes it betters the piece making the colours more vibrant as it removes any wax bloom and sometimes it destroys a piece drawing out colours or tones you didn't intend to show.  It's a crap shoot;-)
My work space is re-organized and ready for the next creation.  WooHoo!

I used to have a nice drawing table like that, but I found I prefer to work hunched over a desk ruining my posture.

Funny, the Canadian Pseudo Kurt has good posture. I'll have to mention that to him so he can adjust for the drawings.

Looking so beautiful, how do you do it? A stunning piece of art. Bet you will be so proud!
Your work space is far tidier than mine,lol!

Hugs!

APPLAUSE on a job well done.

Thank you Julie-ann and Sandy. Unfortunately as a glass half empty person this is the self-loathing and doubt stage as I finish one work and start to look at beginning another. Only once it's professionally framed and I've distanced myself from it for a couple of weeks can I look back a bit more objectively.

This isn't all bad though, as it encourages growth and change in my art as I ever strive for reaching new levels with each painting. I suppose if I was happy with my work, as my coloured pencil instructor once said, I'd never try to improve on it.
