Another evening's work

I seem to be working on different areas at once this time. That could be dangerous if I start losing touch with the tonal relationships of adjoining areas. I'll have to be careful.

I'm making tiny amendments and additions as I go; in fact I woke in the dark of the night, thinking, "Oh no! I must remember to make the seagull's chimney granite, not brick!" This because granite is the building material of preference down Cornwall and would go better, rather than brick. I hoped I would remember when I woke up and not too late when I'd cut it; luckily it popped into my mind as I got up and I was able to scribble a note on my sketch.

Tomorrow is engraving day! Hooray! A whole day on it. Ah well, for today...back to the deadlines......

It's looking great already. :-) It's so interesting for me to read your comments as well as see the progress pictures as I've never done wood engraving.
