Hey, Hurley!! Great to see you again! I was wondering how things were going! As far as your exam, congratulations!!! I never heard of A1 for a mark, so I had to figure out if it was a great thing. Ha ha!
I'm glad your back into the groove again!! You shade wonderfully--the blends are convincing and the colours are full of life!
For the painting, the progress is really nice! Parts of him are popping off the page! I only have a problem about his left shoulder. It looks more stuck to his neck than it should be. Could be the flat colour giving off that impression, though.
Anyway, I hope to see you at my lonely SB! Ha ha! I haven't been able to do much cuz of school. LOTS of school.
