The Next Small Thing

Session 3. I didn't have a lot of time or energy tonight, but you work when you can.  Best, nights like this, to avoid big compositional or conceptual decisions, look for the next small thing that seems to need doing, go from there.  Here's an enlarged detail of one area I worked on.

This is how I see the work through my magnifier.  The darkened recess is HB charcoal pencil, sharpened with an emery board.  Stipple, blend with a Q-Tip, repeat.
