It took my entire studio session to make this drawing. It is substantial, particularly when seen in person, without the difficulties I encountered trying to reproduce it. In reproduction all that white negative space is problematical, leading to a lack of the dynamic white versus gray versus black contrasts seen in the actual drawing. In any case, the process was satisfactory and appealing, acting as one more day of practice in mindfulness. This practicing is leading me to quicker, not slower, art-making. The next painting (coming soon) should not be a labor over days and days, as they have been apt to be.
