When I don't have the time to sit and start a full painting, I fill my sketch books. Pretty soon, I'll have to make a decision about what's going to be painted and what will sit and wait for another day.
I don't often sketch men, but I did fancy doing a picture of Odin and his two Ravens Huggin and Munnin. These crows make me smile a lot as they're looking a bit dippy! The one on the right is trying real hard to be a Tucan, while Odin resembles a grumpy Gandalf! I like the layout though and when I get my problems sorted with the paper stretching I'll probably have a go at this one.
