Waiting for paint to dry in between layers makes me impatient, so instead of being impatient, I spent that time to take photos of the process. I usually forget, but I'm getting better at it.

I started with a rough sketch with a charcoal pencil, painted the outlines with  yellow ochre, then I put down blocks of colour.

  3. For me I like the process of taking step by step photos more than the creating of the thing itself which can sometimes be a disappointment when finished
