slip inside the eye of your mind

I haven't done one of those step by steps for ages, so here goes. This is a really big piece. Way too big to scan - which is why I'm posting these pretty rubbish photos. It's my biggest piece yet. And, without being dramatic (here's where I am going to be dramatic) I do believe this is probably the most important drawing of my life. So far.

It is a commissioned piece. And it's really very personal. Maybe I'll talk about all that as the drawing unfolds. Maybe, I will. I haven't decided yet.

Anyway, this is step one. I want this drawing to be Pre Raphaelite in it's attention to detail. And, here's the thing, it's not just a drawing. Oh no. I'll be cracking out the paints for this one. It told me it should be a painting and I'm listening to what its got to say. All the way.

So as I said, here's step one. Over the next few weeks it'll come to life. Please come back and see it's progress.

Thanks, everyone. I'm surprised by the response. Look forward to showing you more.

Somewhere circus, hee hee, not it's not for Noel Gallagher! I'd love to do a drawing for him though.

Nope, it's much more personal. Hmmm. I guess when it's finihed I might reveal all.

Thank you all x
