Avril. the play of light and shade here is wonderful. And you have selected a striking aspect to portray.

Really wonderful drawing. As Ruth says, you have got the play of light on the bits and pieces so very well - not easy to do in graphite I would have thought. Interesting a very nice to see your work in another medium. Lovely work.
