I was a tad tired last night and didn’t want to wander downstairs to compose this post. I’ve been attempting to de-clutter the house of 20 years accumulation. So many items are already in the donation piles, loads being recycled and even some stuff is heading right into the trash. While poking around in a dead zone corner, between the etching press and a set of flat file drawers, I discovered a mirror. Perfect for a foot study! So I plunked myself down with the drawing board, a chunk of vine charcoal, white chalk and a black conte stick. The paper is from a huge roll of brown builder’s paper (purchased at one of the big box home improvement stores for about $10). I think they use it for covering flooring and other jobs. It ended up in my studio due to the Camas project (when I thought I would have to protect the carpeted floors from my sculptures). Probably not acid free, but it doesn’t matter one bit for something like this. 140feet of paper can certainly hold a lot of sketches!
Sketch size is 12″x 19″ (30cm x 48cm)
