A Tracery in Two

Posted on Wednesday, April 4th, 2012 at 2:21 am

Have been drawing, but actually too busy to post.  Here I am yet again almost too busy to post for the night. Trying to wrap up all my outstanding projects and client work. This sketch is from a couple of weeks ago or so.  I actually began it while on a break at work a few weeks back.  It then fell by the way side as other projects came in and out of play. The only thing remotely interesting about it is that I drew the initial linear work with both hands simultaneously.  Being ambidextrous, I can draw with either hand and often begin works with my left before doing the finishing touches with my right.  this is a very rough sketch to say the least and is on simple copy machine paper.  I figured I’d redo it on better paper later.  I’d love to see this in Wood.

The man is standing in front of a window.  He is complicated and worn.  Working, working and working.  As for me, well I did this during a similar time.  Much better now ; ) LOL.  I’m in the last four weeks of my ceramics class.  May just attempt some drawings, such as this on clay over the summer.  Perhaps a portrait box?  We’ll see.  Until then, working away and carving out my drawing time as always : )

    Hi Britt!

    There is something about ‘A Tracery in Two’ that is very comforting/soothing for me. Not sure what it is but I enjoy the elongated head…some chaos at the top, a bit of rest mid-face and than a more hidden/subtle chaos. Nicely done!
