sometimes progress is slow

In a week I have managed to complete his left eye, and add some minor shading here and there. It's not much, but considering that he is a 61 x 92 cm (approximately 24" x 36") piece of pointillism and I have a full-time job, I think it's ok. I hope to finish most of his face this week, but before I do that, I'm off to the Greek border in search of some geese. The skies are the clearest cerulean, and it would be a shame to stay indoors on this pseudo-spring day. I'm not sure what I'll find out there, but hopefully I'll have some lovely landscape photos for you tomorrow.

Well, I think you have your priorities well in hand - one must make the most of a pseudo-spring day - because more snow and cold are probably lurking around the corner a la Ontario!

Your work on the man's face is fantastic (and meditative perhaps?)

The drawing is gorgeous. Maybe you will want to leave some of it enigmatically unfinished...I did some of this work years ago and know how slow it is! Good luck with it, and I'm looking forward to the bird photos!
