This last week I’ve been working on a double portrait I think I’m going to call J & C, at least for now. It’s the initials of the subjects (two of my amazing wife’s amazing children). Titles are important but I’m not very good at them.
I also picked up my bird project again. When I was a child I could identify most British birds but the years have not been kind to my memory and I was getting frustrated that I now know so few. I thought a good way of learning about them would be to draw them. At the same time, I could develop my coloured pencil technique. I still think this is a good plan but I’ve been making very slow progress.
