|Reno, Pastel on Bristol Paper, 2012|
It has been awhile since I posted anything about my artwork. I am not use to explaining and or giving further explanation about my art in written form. I do however miss the in class critiquing process.
I choose the title of the picture from the trip to Reno that inspired the lady figure in this picture. Below is the sketch I did while in Reno.
Several years later I was looking through my sketch book to find something new to draw and I came across this face and decided I should use it. The page before the face I came across the sketch below.
The end results is a mixture of sketches with a new interpenetration.
Writing this out just reminds me how much a person can change. I use to hate sketch books and did not see the point. I took a class in Italy where we were forced to keep one. I had no idea what to do or how I was going to accomish the grade requirement for the class. I however found away to make it work for me by documenting my travels and small things that caught me eye. After starting to use a sketch book it still took me several years to reproduce or use anything I put into the book.
