Also, I recall working on a fairly large painting once and there was a lot of pacing back and forth from one end of the room to the other simply because you can't see the work from eight inches away when it is supposed to be viewed from ten feet. So to assess your changes you must step back and ponder. Too much to ponder about results in worn carpets, shoes and ankles (not to mention one's disposition).
Here I can see better and the pencil point cuts a much finer line.
This is all I can do with a one inch head.
Also, I'm afraid I'm going to have to renege on the July finish date. I just can't seem to get enough time to together. And, after all, I'm not getting paid by the hour ... I'm not getting paid period. It's just a demo. Imagine, in two months I've managed to do less than a day's work. Pitiful ... just pitiful.
At this rate, I'd better say July of 2003 ... Huh!
I'll just finish off the drawing a section at a time ... then assemble the parts when I have them all.
