|Fifteen Minutes with Diego in the AM; another after lunch, TMDD Series 2015, Graphite; 6 x 8|
Diego is second from the last sketch in the third sketch pad--maybe four--filled this past winter. It's my intention to go till the Spring Equinox, tomorrow and that will end my morning sketch sessions.
No special attention to strategic points or their relationships were paid, I scribbled and kneaded till the clock ran out. There was likeness, but not a great one. I enjoyed letting the pencil go where it wanted as it wanted, the ultimate pleasure of free hand sketching with no particular thought given to joinery. My coffee was still hot when I walked out the studio door. After lunch, I gave it another look and diddled a much closer likeness. The man was homely, but his bulging eyes warranted another drawing session.
