A Return to Order

Anna - 5 April 2013
It's just like riding a bicycle...
I'm just finishing a new picture of Anna. I'd got to the stage where I needed more information to ensure the drawing of the features was right and that I had the correct tonal balance in the figure. So I spent a session drawing her in charcoal and chalk. I confess to a certain self-satisfaction in doing something that is for me not merely out of the ordinary but even against the grain and being pleased with at least some of the results.

(See here for the explanation of the title)

(I haven't ridden my bike for 18 months, what with the wet summer last year and the way I keep getting tennis elbow through hanging on for dear life every time I go out into traffic!)
