Starting portrait no 1 

Choosing a background material . 

I decided the cream was likely to pick up grubby marks as I intend to work intensely on each piece and the grey felt a little drab, so the choice is hessian.  

I am using muslin to add extra strength but this will not show in the final piece as I intend to cut or pull it away from the stitches.
