More more more
I am beginning to wrap my head around Loomis head study. It didn't start to click until I started working on the jaw hinge, which put the feeling if taking up space for me. Funny how that happened. A good lesson learned there is that sometimes I need to push forward to see if I just need to look at it in a different way.
Meanwhile, I have lots of canvas sitting idle and lots of other art supplies that have not had attention in days. I know that if I do not "produce" a piece of work that resembles finished I will start to feel the pressure of all this practice with nothing to show for it.
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
