During the last week, I've also worked on another chair, this one is 14x11. And this is a scan so it was not able to fit on the scanner bed, so it's a little cropped and crooked. It's not finished.
Of course I've been thinking while experimenting in my studio, and the result of my thinking is this. Portraits are my real love. When I started using colored pencils, it was to do portraits. Then last year I started some still lifes with pencils and they went over well, many were sold. Most of those had black or dark backgrounds. And now I've moved into still lifes with lighter backgrounds and they haven't sold at all ( maybe the economy) and I really am not happy with them. So why have I strayed from what I love? I don't know! I think I need to just concentrate on portraits and figure studies. And I still feel a pull to the paints. I'm sure I'll get all this resolved in time. But that's what I began this post talking about...time!
