Lots and Lots of Sketches
Some sketches out of my sketchbook. Most of these are just some random doodles I have toyed with. Some are from my living room, some from my head. I enjoy just sketching. It is very relaxing and helps me plant seeds for later. Most of these doodles will never become a finished product.
Sketching is a way of forcing observation. Many times I will catch myself overlooking the obvious when I paint. My observation skills get lazy while I am thinking of color, value and palette choices. I become so involved in how to get the paint on the surface that I forget what the form is doing.

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
