Ball Of Wool - 27

Terrible photo i know, but I've brought the sky down to the horizon today..lots of work to do strengthening the saturation of the colours and create a bit more of a contrast around the lit side of my face. Then it'll be on to the foreground work which will be nearing the end!

I slept so badly last night..my mood is poor today grumbling and moaning. My mind is away on other things most of the time, but one of the beauties of this work is that you can just let the other thoughts run separately to the drawing .

Saw a poignant picture of a wounded British soldier ..his T Shirt said.."I've been to Afghanistan and all I brought back was this lousy plastic leg"
