Charcoal of Ruby June Captured by the Deep Ones – in progress

Another work in progress.  Here is where Ruby June gets captured by the deep ones.  I love them at this stage.  You can still see some of the grid lines here and the flat value pass with my erased gesture.  I love that flat middle value when I start to pull out the lights and just push some of the values a bit.  But the work must continue or I’ll never get to the painting stage!
