February finds me a little scattered. I'm trying to simplify means and method and media in sketching. Here I had to work quickly (which is, after all, what sketching IS) because baby Miles was sure to wake up any minute. I've used two Pitt Artist pens, a smidge of watercolor, and a fountain pen. Would love to pare down my sketching gear, for now, to these three basics.
No surprise, I'm back to drawing on my toned Strathmore paper. It's addictive. I first used it 2 or 3 years ago and I've been in love with it since. Below is my tabletop, a view the day after a Norwegian meal I prepared:
Below: two of many drawings on various subjects in a series. Could I get any vaguer than that description if I tried?
And I've got to get started seriously on my work (both paintings and drawings) for the upcoming fall show! The theme is plants: mostly flowers, but some trees, etc. I have to figure out a way to produce pieces that are personal and powerful. Otherwise, there's no point ;D.
