I am getting much closer to done now...it will be the long process of cleaning edges etc but only a small area left to figure out...the twine around the darning needle in the center. Hopefully this weekend I can start a new drawing and be ready to paint maybe on Monday or Tuesday depending on how much work I have to do in the drawing. So here is where I am tonight.

I have worked today but unsure if it even shows. Some days are like that I guess. The confusing book is sorting itself out...I now have to take back some of the checkered pattern so you can see the letters on top but I had trouble following the pattern so just had to go for it...still a lot to do there but hopefully that pattern will come through when I am done. I sure would like to finish this in a couple of days so I can begin the next one...I need to get several large pieces done and it is just not coming together as quickly as I had hoped! I just can't seem to stay in my chair and get the work done like I use to do.

I sure am having trouble getting the right colors but at least you can see I am moving forward and the surprise at the end will be a painting that hopefully is the right color! ha!! I am playing with the angles and background to try something new to isolate my set up and draw the eye in...I am still not sure how dark to go with all of this so I am creeping in until I feel it is where I want it. Now if I knew Photoshop I would be in luck but since I don't this is what I have to do.
