Re: CONOR'S CORNER

Hi Belle, they should be dry I've not touched them for weeks as I've thrown myself into the Hopkins drawing. I've really enjoyed drawing him and need it finished for a competition I'd like to enter. Then I will get back to the painting. Hope your well not heard from you for a while. Or moh is she ok?
