Hello, back again after illness and a short stay in hospital. Nothing serious, all better now.
this is just a doodle where I started in the centre and just kept adding. I have noticed a theme in my doodles of repeated shapes connected by bars.
This photo below is the portrait I have been working on. It looks quite strong and compelling in a photo. I have overlaid some beige satin on the highlights of his face, ready for some free motion machine stitching.
