My maiden name is Faucett. Just a silly little sketch I did to play with ideas for a metaphorical/allegorical piece. I don't know if I am going to do anything with this other than this.
I would like to do something that shows my sense of humor. My life philosophy is "Cry when you are full of joy and laugh the rest of the time". I am one of those people who's kids secretly hope mom cries. They won't admit it to me, but they always ask each other "Did mom cry?" every time they do a solo or graduate or anything wonderful.
.. and thats all the hints I am giving on the possible ways I have thought of to use this sketch.
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
