I'm heading back into these animals and people showing up again in the drawings. I can only go so long in drawing abstracted images before I want to draw animals and quirky made up people. I think I'm working out some way to put them all together, but I have not arrived there yet.
Here's how the drawing project is coming along. From top to bottom the drawings are in order of how they were done. The sketchbook drawing on the bottom was done somewhere in the middle of the others. I see much more clearly how my work develops from doing these daily drawings. The thing I'm doing more of is letting something I do play out a little longer as an exploration. Like right now I am getting really into iridescent inks. A few years ago I discovered how they kind of "sugared" the paper, especially if it was good watercolor paper, and I really like that.
I am an artist working in watercolor, acrylic, and collage. I live in a small village on the coast of Maine. I blog to connect and share my art and my everyday life with others. It's a place where I can touch down to document what I experience as an artist.
