rosemary, heaven restores you in life

Charcoal Pencil on Stonehenge Paper Notes: I’ve always taken these art progression photos from the seated position that I draw from.  That produces an image with a skewed perspective, but I’ve never liked the bird’s eye view type of shot for drawings.  I might as well throw it on the scanner for that.  Like most […]

Figure Drawing – 5-18-11 – Atlanta Artists Center

Notes: Atlanta Artists Center.  Charcoal on newsprint.  Male model reminded me of Perseus from Greek mythology.  As for the drawings, like a ballplayer, I had an off night tonight, maybe going something like 2 for 4, had other things on my mind.

Art in Progress: Sally 2

…charcoal on stonehenge paper…as always this particular style gives me time to process in my head other things besides the drawing itself…there’s this famous painting with a caption “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” (This is not a pipe)…sometimes painting is not to affirm anything…it just is…
