I am constantly thinking in metaphors. I am never sure if it is a gift or a curse. I found my 8x5 sketchbook and browsed through lots of pictures of faucets. If I ever put together an allegorical piece it would include a faucet of some kind.
A faucet could represent a lot of things. It could be the beginning of a flow, or the source of nurturing waters. It could be the means to which something is retrieved. In my case it could be all of those things and a representative of the last name Faucett which is my maiden name.
I am not sure if I will ever do an allegorical piece. For now, I am just making a collection of ideas that might support it.
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
A #gouache #colorstudy using the same pallet. This is an attempt to do an imaginary #landscape and play with #composition. I like atmospheric environments. This is my base to begin thinking about entire scenes and not just the single item drawings that I have been doing. #art #artist #sketchvia Instagram
