Too often my intuition rules. The drawing and the painting shown today were made because intuitive questions which require intuitive answers. I feel insecure about both, but I feel these works are required. I must make them. First, the drawing. It again visits my idea of finding while making, and the need to touch both media surface and form surface simultaneously (not an easy task). So this is a "practice" drawing, like a baseball player taking batting practice, repetitively swinging at pitched balls. I repeat myself in method. It gets old. It is annoying. Here's the drawing...
Looking at this drawing I like the central figure, but dislike the woman on the right. Her chin, and how it swings into her left jaw line (on our right), will be re-drawn today.
This is version 5 of "Two Men." Look to previous posts in this blog for more information regarding earlier versions, or visit the web page ART in PROGRESS. This painting is very close to conclusion. Today I will probably not paint on "Two Men" but return to "Pond" (shown in previous posts and on ART in PROGRESS).
