Upcoming exhibition - I hope!

Alright, I've been on a crazy ride these last weeks, so I've not posted anything outside facebook, really... Good things happening all over the place.

One of the good things are that I was told to submit to an exhibition that I'm delivering my work for on Monday or Tuesday. I was hitting it hard with pencils and oil painting, but I have decided to not submit my oils since I'm not liking them enough. It's been over ten years since I worked with oils, and didn't know much about how to do it then either. At the moment it feels like the oils are working against me rather than for me, and I'd like some more practice with them before I let anyone see them. As per now, they don't look so good skill wise because I am struggling a bit with the medium.

I'm doing A3 drawings in pencil still though. Here's a couple of progress shots:

 The one with the covered hair is coming with me for sure. The other one I don't know yet. I'm working on several, I'll see which ones are best when the weekend is over. :)

Also, since I am not turning in oils, I am turning in prints of my digital work instead. They don't really know where to put it yet, but are very positive about taking it in, so we'll see if it ends up in the "other" category or not when they see them.

Having a hard time deciding which one to take to print tomorrow though, nailed it down to eight, of which I am partial to 2, 5 and 7. I might feel a bit weird turning in 4, so I don't know yet. A lot of people like 4 the best though, so I might do it if I remove her name. 2 and 3 has myself as a model though, so if it's 2 or 3 and then 4 and 7 it'll be a family group... :P

Also, everything have to pass through three judges, so I might be biting my nails just a little bit the next week....  Wish me luck! :)

And yes, I *will* try to get some proper photos taken of my pencils this weekend when the light is better. :)
