I have to start somewhere

This is my first attempt at blogging, so please forgive all the inevitable mistakes. Things will be rectified in time.
My first project to post here is the beginnings of a painting in progress. This will be a portrait of kevin. I have painted a colour study outside in a biting wind and taken photos. I have now made a canvas up to size and am about to start drawing. I use a cane with charcoal on the end to that I can get the basics of the drawing in from a distance.
Having put in the basics with charcoal I begin to start blocking in the main shapes.
Adding a little more detail to the background.
Eventually people are beginning to take shape.
