One year old
I had a lot of fun working on this sketch. I keep trying to do a sketch that reads as 'my' work in the shortest amount of time possible. Which is kind of tricky. I hurried and did this one this morning because I was working on a new drawing (that I think should interest Christine, Jen and Summer) that I'm pretty excited about, but didn't finish it in time to post. Next week for sure :)
I loved my son's expression in this drawing. There's so much wonder there, like he's seeing things for the first time, which he probably was. I wish I could remember what he was looking at :) And, I'm kind of tired of charcoal for now, I think I'm moving on to graphite for my sketches next time. Ah, the joys of being an artist and the freedom to change your mind over and over again.
And a quick question before I go, when you guys are doing more 'finished' drawings what's your favorite surface to work on? I don't think I've found one that I love yet, other than Rising Stonehenge, which unfortunately is difficult to find. Grrrrr. These sketches are done on newsprint, which I don't really love either. I'm kinda picky :)
