Do you have the following attribute in your
[assembly: log4net.Config.XmlConfigurator(ConfigFile = "Log4Net.config", Watch = true)]
and code like this at the start of each class that requires logging functionality:
private static readonly ILog log = LogManager.GetLogger(System.Reflection.MethodBase.GetCurrentMethod().DeclaringType);
I have a blog post containing this and other info here.
