A little bit of something...
I did not paint, as I had intended. I did draw. Like a repetitive dream, I keep revisiting a flash of an idea. It is a painting with a few heads dominating the composition. Yesterday's first drawing tackled this problem. It is a very good start toward the solution. There is much to be learned about me in this drawing #1. I love the forms, how they dominate the composition and force the eye to role around and through the entire compositional structure. I also find their light filled, robust three-dimentionality, exhilarating. This drawing works well at multiple viewing distances, from the textures created by the lines, to the reading of the forms' details, to the composition experienced when the viewer backs off 10 feet from the image. I also like the way the guy on the right has his eyes rolling around, looking for a truth to grasp.
