Games 25


I tried a few different methods before I got the strings right on the racket..even so they are unrefined at the moment so should look more even on completion.Basically I used two set squares (one 'blue tacked' to the paper) to draw the strings in pencil..I then dotted the squares in.when satisfied, I rubbed out the pencil.
the trees on the horizon have continued to appear. I have now completed 99 hours work on this piece..will do some more tonight!

It's great to see how far this picture has come along sice I last visited. It has a great 'feel' to it. The stormy atmosphere is quite fitting to the weather we are having down where I am at the moment!

Great ..simply great .. patience and creativity .. two virtues and you seem to have both ..

BTW ... sorry for late response on that story you liked on my blog .. it surely is touching ... it captures the essence of married life and its beauty which many people do seem to forget ...
