Well, I didn't make it to the open studio. This is a small figure drawing from last year. Forgive me for posting old work. BUT, the good news is that I did draw on the stone. I integrated a Korn's #4 into the darker details of the stone drawing. The Copal #5 was taking forever. I am on the home stretch. Today I do what I call "sweetening" the drawing. Minor details and final touches, clean up. I think this blog is a distraction, but the clock is ticking and I must finish today or else. Does anyone else have trouble going into the studio? I also need to grain 2 more stones, double argh! Going to get some coffee... forgive my incessant whining.
