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.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
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
