This Piece is now complete. At 1000 x 700 it is by far the largest work I have completed so far. In all it took the best part of 3 weeks to complete working an average of 2- 3 hrs a day, 5 days a week. Fortunately I devised some techniques for doing the grass which helped to make a daunting task easier. I score / indent the paper with the blunt end of a small paintbrush which gives the grass it's texture. After that I run a 2b pencil over the surface of the paper followed by a 9b for the darker areas. Whew!! Now for framing.
