The guitarist sketch was developed a bit more this morning as I listened to my son and his dad talk over their morning coffee. He's a tough draw and this morning's session told me he would be an even tougher painting. There are so many strategic points that must match up to get his position right. I initialed him and put my pencil down after getting far enough to realize he'd be a candidate for the Flemish method of construction, otherwise known as the Venetian method pending on who's doing the talking. I think of the grid/grisaille start as the GG method. The grid would be good for getting the points and angles right. The Grisaille would be good for getting the values right. In the darkest area, there are a lot of strategic details with values that differ from one another by a degree or two. The difference is important for the values describe the weight of his arm, the movement of his fingers on the down stroke strum--the stuff that makes the guitarist a maestro.
