I'm in full on making mode lately. It's a little bit of panic mode due to this but also I just really feel like painting and drawing. For the first time this year I've actually wanted to sketch stuff in my notebook at other times of the day. I always wanted to be one of those people who carries a sketchbook around with them everywhere and draws in it throughout the day. I've faked it a lot this year but for the first time this week, I found myself getting my sketchbook out at various times to try something out. That is really exciting to me...perhaps I'm finally becoming that person. Here's a glimpse into the process of the larger piece that I'm currently working on:
I really enjoyed that last piece that I did loosely based on a Basquiat painting. I like that I'm able to incorporate bits of all my little morning drawings into one larger piece. This time I wanted to add color and decided to go with some loose washes. Today I'll be adding in some more muted color and some contrast. Fear peeks in every so often telling me that I'm going to ruin it but I'm fighting it.
