I continued my larger scale black and white sketching on Sunday with a picture of the large pine in the woods along my yard.
In order to conserve paper I used the right half of a page that I had drawn on the day before. Looking at the whole page it looks like the pine is doing the painting over her shoulder while holding a gun to Doreen’s back. She seems unfazed by it all.
Some of the best work I've done isn't hanging on a wall; it's sitting in a box in my closet that's full of my old sketch books. I fill up one or two books each year. Some of the sketches end up as a basis of a more formal work, but most don't. They’re more important to me as a pictorial diary and also as on-going training; learning to really see and to understand shape, light and color.
This blog is to share my sketches as well as my sketching experiences.
