Aachen Study - Simmering Stews
It is time to let this simmer like stew. Not only do I need to let the paint dry, but I need to step back and allow my brain to stop repeating any mistakes I am making. This will give me time to clean up my studio and get some things done around the house and maybe even get some things started for my next painting. I have never tried to work on two paintings at a time. Since I have to let these paintings dry before I add layers, it might improve my productivity to give it a shot.
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
