Other than a few more slight alterations and a few little adjustments, here is the finished image of A Grain of Sand. This has been the biggest challenge I’ve taken on in a very long time. It’s my unceasing passion and to be honest, blind determination that has seen me through to the final stages. I can’t say I loved every moment but I have truly learned a lot and developed my technique over the countless hours. I’m very proud of this piece and look forward to taking a high quality photo (without bounce) for prints and a new thing for me – getting it framed up (this is on canvas board).

Pretty much, very nearly, so close… sort of finished! I tend to spend a couple of weeks after finishing a piece weighing up how it balances, the overall composition and whether any of the colours need a little adjustment. So far I haven’t made these changes but I think I’ve identified a few minor things to make it absolutely perfect.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my creative process in this piece. I love to talk art so if anyone wants to discuss anything raised in my blog please feel free to get in touch.

Prints will be coming up in the next few weeks. To see the world in a grain of sand…
