Hey! I went to determine drawing!
As soon as winter hits us for actual, I’m going into hibernation, and don’t are likely to make it out for all times drawing till the spring.
However to be trustworthy, I didn’t draw these immediately. I had this stash of line drawings saved from a earlier reside session, months and months in the past. I can’t even keep in mind when. I procrastinated lengthy sufficient that I mentioned; why not save them for #OneWeek100People.
The actual story is; I used to be ready for the proper second, after I was courageous sufficient to probably break these drawings.
I discover if I wait lengthy sufficient I lose the ‘jealous hoarding’ feeling, and it’s okay to threat destroying them. Or – possibly – it’s extra like, I stack up sufficient drawings in reserve that I really feel like I’ve ‘drawings to burn.’
That’s actually the case this week!
The experiment this time was to destroy the picture! after which see if I might put it aside. Perhaps discover a new method to unify the determine with the background.
I made a primary move that’s utterly moist and wild, utilizing 2″ flat to circulate colour onto these 6×9″ pages. Then got here again with selective wet-on-dry blends, pushing and pulling edges, seeing if I can deliver the determine again into focus.
(It’s not likely as dangerous as I’m making it sound. You’re simply re-establishing sharp edges the place you want them.)
So, this is likely one of the hidden advantages of an artwork marathon. Setting apart time to do ‘loopy experiments’. Issues I most likely wouldn’t try to do on a standard week.
