Oil on 6x6 panel
I was at a loss as to what to paint today. I hit the Artwork from Life channel on Wetcanvas! and stumbled upon the scavenger hunt list.
This is the cakepan, dispan and towel. I discovered it is very hard to paint when facing a bright window. My eyes kept having to adjust to the light. Perhaps next time, I will not square up with the window.
I kinda like this painting in a weird boring sort of way. It is comfortable. This particular spot in my home is where I spend the most time. This is the "morning window" where the best scene of sunrise coming over the barn can be found. My coffee pot sits just to the right of this spot, so I can drink until I drown. At night, this is where my helper (one of my kids) stand drying dishes while I wash and we discuss anything from apples to zoo keeper as a career. Funny how a silly little boring scene can provoke an emotion like the serenity I felt when I was done. This is why I am an artist. I am sure of it.
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
