6x6 oil on panel
My daughter stayed home sick from school. I thought I would take advantage of her nap time and attempt to paint her. I had a good start and there was a point where it looked pretty good. Then I got a couple phone calls, the dog wanted out, more phone calls and my time was running out. I attempted to continue to paint during all of this. I cannot talk while drawing or painting. One of the activities always suffers, be it the conversation, or the piece I am working on. In this case it was the piece I was working on. By the time all this was done, she woke up and moved and I could not resurrect this from a slow and painful death.
This goes in my ugly collection to remind me that phone calls mixed with paint causes mud.
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
A #gouache #colorstudy using the same pallet. This is an attempt to do an imaginary #landscape and play with #composition. I like atmospheric environments. This is my base to begin thinking about entire scenes and not just the single item drawings that I have been doing. #art #artist #sketchvia Instagram
