The Party is clearly well under way : ) I usually do my drawings in a single shot, sometimes taking a second pass here and there but this particular piece I did once light and then decided to go back in more boldly with more gesturing. It’s far looser than I usually work but it has its charm as a sketch. Being a very deliberate artist, this is fairly haphazard for me and yet was fun! More importantly it’s done.
I spent some quality time over at my favorite drawing spot today enjoying a giant cup of tea and working on some character studies for a family portrait. I’m drawing the members as puppets posing for a portrait. I’d like to have them being forced to be doing things they don’t want to do. One of them will be cutting her own strings… she can’t help it, she’s a wee bit of a trouble maker ; ) Hopefully it will capture the essence of this particular family dynamic. It’s a very important piece and has required a great deal of thinking, research and variations. The deadline has been pushed back a few weeks which is great for my schedule. Well, that is it for me. I spent the day elbow deep with scrubbing down the art department. I’m bushed. Another big day tomorrow.
Britt : )
