hello, the past two days I have been embarking on the piece that started with sketches I have been doing for this blog. It took me quite a while to draw, lots of intricate lines and elipses. It's a 24"x18", most of my sketches have been about half that or smaller, so definitely more time consuming. I have it laid out on my living room floor, and crouching for hours while drawing is NOT ideal. I think every joint has locked up. But it's so much warmer in here by the stove than in my chilly studio. The first one is just the drawing and the second is the start of the color. I realize I have to stop, it's 3 am and I should be in bed.
