Sketches and a Wish List
Another rough sketch. I don't know what I am looking for, but this is closer. I haven't figured out what is missing. I do like the shoes under the chair. I still don't have my paint back. I am running out of papers and supplies to really work with. Having a daughter who is an art major has its pro's and con's. Perhaps when she comes ready with her own supplies, it might be more fun. I will have to wait it out and see.
Just for the fun of it, I made a wish list on Dick Blick. I could never order all that stuff, but it is nice to think that its on request. It is like window shopping without your shoes off.
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
