Lovely simple composition. I've just been reading a book by Susan Sarback and the approach adopted here echoes her advice about blocking in the shapes on which to build your structure of light and detail. I enjoy the introduction of colour notes into your main masses.

Hi Mick. I'm really happy with this one. Although I feel, looking at it now, that I could have accomplished the same with half as many strokes.
