This is a sketch from a photo for a larger drawing. I am working out ideas and getting my blatant mistakes out of the way. I am not sure what the final drawing will be. I need to make sure this is on something that will ship well. The final will be heading to Canada. I have lots of options. Copperpoint, Graphite, Fixed Charcoal, Ink. Sometimes the possibilities are overwhelming.
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
