Wishbone 2

May 30, 2013

wishbone5-30-13

I spent part of my day pulling out gesso and prepping paper for a maniere noire drawing only to discover the large hunks of charcoal in my box were really cruddy. To me, charcoal is supposed to lay down black, not grey. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get out for some new material. So rather than let the energy head south, I pulled out some mini chunks (proven black) and toned a quarter sheet of paper, and tackled another wishbone perspective. Really, I’m trying to keep from thinking about the Art in Rural Storefronts first jury round. Part of me would really like to be accepted to the next level of the process, but part would be happy if I wasn’t. Maybe next week the results will be in. With a little luck, our weather might get a tad sunnier too. 🙂

Drawing material: Charcoal & white conte crayon on tan Rives BFK, 11″x 15″ (28cm  x 38 cm)
