Black and white

Good evening everyone (well everyone in the UK anyway). Have recovered from a very mixed birthday this year - sometimes I wonder if they really are worth celebrating? 

Passing through such unpleasant thoughts and on to art! I may at some point, and this is an enormous 'may' be working on a monochrome project, which I have been dying to do for some time, because I actually quite like working in just pencil. Pencil can be very powerful and works very well, if it is not placed next to colour, which always drowns out the subtleties of greyscale pencil.

I know you have seen some of this work before, but it seems appropriate to show it to you again, because hopefully this is the sort of thing I hope to do.
