time keeps slipping...
I made contact with my partner boardlady (or rather she with me) and managed to make a start. i got super busy at work right as this started, so i'm losing a little sleep working on this - hope it doesn't have a negative effect on my painting!

i had a decent umber layer last night, didn't take a picture (sorry!) but then i fiddled it to death and ended up wiping it all off
so this evening i looked at it and could still see some of my original lines, went over the ones that looked right and did a little white for highlights...it might be ready for color!
what struck me about the photo was the direct and pleasant gaze. i'm hoping i can capture that
sorry for the novella!
