By drawing I am practicing touch and flow. It is here I an undergoing sensitivity training. The dynamics of value, form, and space (negative and positive), are within me; I am practicing making them outside of me. I am an athlete in training. I am sharing my sensitivity with you. These two drawings are among my very best. Most interesting is the technical aspect of centered composition, which is especially true in drawing No.2. Centered compositions were Picasso's default. A wide range of play in form, value, and space are allowed when centering is achieved. Centering grabs the viewer. When viewer is secured, the possible journey is wide and long, a fullness of dynamics and emotions are allowed.
Lately I have been wasting a lot of pencil strokes. They have not been worth it, except for one truth revealed: Making marks is not as important as making a dynamic composition.
Yesterday's drawing reveals personal deception. Yesterday's simple drawing strikes me as one of my best. You will see a lot of pencil strokes on the drawings in my previous two blog posts, particularly the drawing posted on 10/30/2021. If Jean-Michel Basquiat's painting, the one I posted on 10/24/2021, teaches me anything, it is composition dynamism is obviously more important than strokes of pencil or brush.
