Charcoal and pinboard

A couple of things to see here – one is that Diana is still hanging around the easel – this time getting more expressive with a bit of charcoal.

The other is the pinboard. It’s a huge piece, salvaged from an office, that is now attached to the studio wall. Lately, I’ve been painting studies and exercises on unstretched canvas because it’s easier to store in a folio than a panel. (No big deal to mount on panel later if I wanted to frame them anway.) Another advantage with this pinboard is that I can stick them on the pinboard and see all the work from the current project together.
