Had a quiet moment to focus on this piece, which has been "in progress" since april 🙈 But sometimes you need to leave things alone for a while, so that you can see them in a new light when you come back to them again.
I thought I botched the skin colour when I first started laying down the paint, and stopped altogether in fear of ruining it completely.
Then, after playing with the pencils in the last few days, I've started to warm up to it again, and feel it's been worthwhile to proceed so carefully with it. I hope that it'll come to completion in its best shape. 😊
