Swinging on the monkey bars… from one rung to the next… don’t get anywhere without reaching out and seeing what happens. This time it was pulling a drawing from the stack of life drawings to use as a source for a pastel drawing. Instigated on a whim, it wasn’t meant to be anything more than movement, an exercise, but now, it’s intriguing the way that the light blue tinted gesso works with the colors laid on top, and the way that the vine charcoal interacts with the white & blue pastels. Simple stuff, and a clumsy execution, but it’s fuel for a few days worth of daydreaming about possibilities.
Definitely need to keep pulling from the pile of work from life drawing and using it as source code.
