Searching For Clarity

Duck Out Of Water

Drink Me

I painted the top one and though I love the color, I thought I could do better by trying to stay conscious of my tendency to add more than necessary. Not that the duck is unnecessary but I felt I may have used more brushstrokes and fussed with details in having mindless fun so I took another shot at it. That said, I learned that I like them both. Do you have a clear preference? If so, please feel free to weigh in.

Figure Drawing Sketchbook

It's been a long time since posting here so I thought I'd share something of what I've been up to. Besides painting some different works not posted and spending days with my sweet grandson, I've been getting back to basics by drawing from live models, which I started back when I was 15. It's a great foundation and sort of like riding a bicycle (only in that you don't forget how). Wednesday night is figure drawing with the local artists' guild so a friend and I go and sketch the models then follow it up with 1/2 price margaritas across the street.
