Next to the last portrait in this series.
But first, my warm up for today. The first one is the “insert” of the warm up. The real sun was shining on the clouds, helping me out.
The next portrait in this series. I left this one a little less refined.
middle of 12 tries
So . . . re-working, letting first tries go, re-working, letting middle tries go. When to stop??? I can see the first try had some “truth” to it, and so did the last. Learned a lot.
I had a great class where the assignment was basically to draw something, then keep adding changes to the drawing that derailed it, wrecked it, changed it completely. It broke all these old ideas: that things have to be planned, that things have to be perfect, that if it’s not working then throw it out. The challenge was to stay curious about the changes and be brave! Erasers work great.
