*30 IN 30* Day 24

Well, my light box has improved my photographs, but shooting some pieces is still beyond my skills. When there is little contrast between values or textures, as in this sketch, the subtleties aren't discernible.

Am happy to say that this one is a delight in person, with an interesting play of textures and whites. Am excited about the stitching done over the gesso, which is painted on a fine white silk. Worked through several technical problems successfully. Yes!
