What I am doing.......Portrait commissions

Some of my regular readers may have been wondering what's up with Adebanji, no posts since Saturday?

Well, I will be posting soon and it would be on the current portrait commissions I am trying to finish. I am working from photos in sepia/ sanguine dust and coloured pencils. I have 4 to complete and it has been a warfare! Somehow I have found myself having to read and re-read all my drawing books to solve the problems I have encountered with this commission and I can't wait to share them with you all. Hope to be through by the weekend. One thing I must confess that has helped me thus far is just believing in myself again, because sometimes failure can bring a lack of confidence and that is the last thing you need when working on drawings.

I also had a great time with my blogging friend, Dominique, her visit has had a profound effect on my life all together. I will be posting shots on their visit to my studio, our tour around the Westend- London Eye and others. Even in the gloom and doom of the society today, some rich relationships and meet ups like the one I had with Dominique can really change ones views about life!

Good news! My sister had a baby girl on Monday!!! She had been married since 2001 and they have had so many miscarriages and one still birth a day after my birthday last year but God had been faithful he provided them with a beautiful angel! I'll be posting on that too.

But for now I am taking a break at the Internet cafe after which I will return to my studio to fight on with my coloured pencils!

Thanks for listening to my ramblings..........
