Profile Sketch Tiddled...and more...

 
I tiddled this a bit today, but I have mostly been working on a commissioned triple portrait, which I don't (as yet) have permission to post.
 
I've not been painting much lately because house and garden have needed attention...yeah I know...boring! But it will be worth it in the end. I've been digging up trees and knocking down walls so that it feels like I have moved house!

From this....
to this.
This is my lounge minus a wall.
There will soon be a wall and doorway to separate lounge from bedroom and bathroom! French doors to the dining room, new skirting and architrave and floor, and then...then we can decorate. Woohoo!

I love this kind of house work you're doing! It's my cup of tea. There's nothing as much fun as remodeling space. It's not boring at all. You do need to put up a wall between your private spaces and your public ones.

Now having your carpets cleaned is boring--and it's boring and exhausting trying to figure out how to keep my feet clean leaving the studio. I think we should pull up that carpeting in that hall and tile it. Honey says leave him alone. So I'm thinking of laying a runner on top of the existing--something very busy so it won't show paint and charcoal scuffs that usually come with me on the bottom of my shoes.

beautiful drawing and I can tell that your space is going to be wonderful when you are finished.

Great portrait - and as one who has recently remodelled - not boring at all!
