Buster and Tess portrait update

this past week has been one of those weeks when everything that could go wrong has gone wrong and ive spent the majority of it dashing around or on the phone fire-fighting the seemingly endless stream of hitches that have come my way.yesterday there was finally light at the end of the tunnel that is this eminently forgettable week and i managed to reach the sanctuary of the studio and make a start on Busters companion Tess.Ive managed to complete one ear and have started the layering process on tess's face that will build up to give shape and form prior to adding details.due to the stage that this process is at you can clearly see the different layers in action here as i progressively build up the darker tones and leave lighter those areas of the coat subject to shine

That base layer is so awesome! It almost appears to be watercolor instead of graphite! I can't wait to see how this comes out! I wish you the peace and solitude to complete it soon!
