I wish I had more interesting stuff to show right now. Been cranking on some paintings for an upcoming show and I don't want to spill the beans on those sketches/paintings.......yet. The pic I posted was a study I did to see what approach would be best on the larger canvases I'm painting right now. Funny thing is, this one was a loose acrylic painting with some rattle can action underneath for coverage, with no underdrawing. It went pretty quick, and I thought, "Great! These paintings will go by quick!" Ha! Not so quick. As soon as any kind of pre-planned thought is set out to execute, it seems to take ten times as long. WTF??? If you draw on your pee-chee folder, whatever, but as soon as it's in a sketchbook, you freeze up. Or, at least I do.
