Whoa, its been awhile since my last post. I finished 2 wire pieces and am close on a third, all going to 13 Forest gallery in Arlington MA, the first two were a rowhouse piece and a steam car portrait, here is an in progress on the third…
When the kids are away… I can work on drawing a chair…
Been a slow week for finding studio time, alas, but every mark is closer.
I didn't quite make my goal but pretty close, here is a week and 2 days worth of progress on the pencil drawing, still making me nervous but I'm happier with it than my previous attempts.
I work pretty slow with the wire pieces, but that pace pales to how long it takes me to draw with pencil. I'm going to try a modest once a week blog post (with more here and there for extra bits of information) and I'm going to use the progress of this long (oh I mean really, really long) overdue pencil drawing as a way to have something to write about. When I draw with pencil I first outline every shape I see, then go back and fill them all in with different pencil densities like a paint by number. Sometimes I will fill in some shapes here and there to see how things are going but I try to wait until the end, which if current studio availability trends persist, could be some time off.
p.s. I just noticed by mere coincidence that my last (and first ever) blog post was one year and two days ago. Ooops.
