an etheral challenge

When I was uploading yesterdays blog I was also chatting with some friends in fat chicks, where else,… but how many times must I tolerate the boot… what is the record..??

As a mere male I gave up… but this morning as I sorted through the aborted sketches  one incomplete one struck me as having exactly that delicate quality. It is also a good example of how I’m starting portraits these days… all smudges of a very soft graphite stick to define the shadows of the face… and a slow search for the right places to put a little detail with a conventional pencil but again a soft one, 6B in this case
