Squeezed in a little more time this week to do a few more experimental colored pencil drawings. Discovered some old, old photos to use as reference and away I went. It was good to have the issue of WHAT to draw somewhat solved. Now it's just a matter of HOW (and let's not even get into WHY).
The photos are black and white and not in very good shape so, um, there is a lot of room for experimenting with color, tone, etc. I get to play, to fictionalize.
Not everyday has been sheer bliss. Had a bad art day and it left me frustrated and snarly at the world. Want to tear those pages out of my sketchbook but they serve as a reminder that this is a learning process and I will fall flat on my face many times before the get my groove back.
