Gathering Strength - WIP Take 2

"Gathering Strength" WIP, Coloured Pencil on Stonehenge byBelinda Lindhardt

This one is coming along SLOWLY, i have been busy moving, unpacking, organising, fixing computers, fixing electrical fuses, (add a list of numerous things connected with kids and sick kids here) during this time i have been stealing away a few moments here and there to work on this one. It's situated in my dining room area so it means i am constantly looking at it and working out what needs to be done for my next time of stealing away a few moments. Normally i wouldnt work this way at all but i am actually finding it working out really well. I am itching to do some painting and as i was sorting the other day i smelt my oil paints and longed to get them out .... but given the amount of stuff i have on at the moment i have just had to put it all aside and concentrate on this.

As i mentioned in a previous post my 2yo had a fun time with a orange pencil which i dont think you can see much of in this photo but is all over his face and my face which i am yet to do. My preliminary tests look like i can cover it up and I think i will be able to save it so i will continue on.

Anywhos apologies for the lack of posts, just need to get some catching up done and i will be back on track. i hope (fingers crossed)

Belinda, I'm so glad that you can save this, it shows so much promise! I love how you do people, your work always has so much emotion.

I've been thinking about you.
I'm glad that you can save this piece also.
Just a thought: Do you have a battery-powered eraser? It probably wouldn't take all the pencil off but it might get a lot of it.
So glad to hear from you. :)

Belinda, I, too, see lots of emotion in your work. This is lovely. Nice to see you!!

Belinda, that is my worst nightmare - a 2 yr. old and a writing utensil! I as yet have not had any incidents (though I did find a 2 yr. old sucking a cake of cobalt blue wc paint once). There's only so much that one can hide away on top of the fridge!
It's a catch-22 - you keep your art out and accessible so that you can continue to pursue it, but it also leaves it in dangerous proximity to little fingers.
