3 months ago, the work that was getting peeled off the boards wasn’t all that different than what got peeled off today.
The jumping off point was originally to be able to do 20 minute portraits; just capture a likeness without dwelling on details and try not to muddy up what makes it onto the page, and all and all, that’s pretty much what happened…
Unfortunately, that was pretty much all that happened. There’s no revelation, transformation, or wonder found on the page. There’s no strategy involved yet. (That’s bound to change)… and I don’t mind sticking to exploring and practicing drawing portraits for a few weeks using the limited pallet.
This is so completely different from the charcoal work of just yesterday.
