A WORD ABOUT MY THIRTY MINUTE DAILY DRAWINGS
The drawings are quickly done. I need something quick to balance the very slow painting process I'm using these days. Scumbling is a painstaking technique. I'm still scumbling I'll Be In The Hot Tub and yesterday scumbled in an inch of color on the Erin grisaille. I wanted to see if the grisaille made value matching easier. It does.
Life is slow in the slow lane of traditional painting techniques. I am enjoying it. There's no stress other than keeping your brushes clean and your palette orderly. BUT the method .doesn't support frequent blogging of a variety of completed paintings--so I'm back to drawing-of-the-day, exactly where I started with Blogger five years ago, till April. That's when I can put my Sun Torch Lamp back in storage--but not the drawing. The early morning half hours are a delightful way to start the day
I'VE SCUMBLED I'LL BE IN THE HOT TUB THIS FAR SO FAR:
