Instructions: break up the composition space first with a grid of not necessarily straight, not necessarily equivalent lines. At least five of them. Then, draw your figure. How is your drawing influenced by the grid? What happens when you add color?
Instructions: with as few marks as possible, indicate the figure. What did you include? What did you leave out?
I love the uninhibited, almost primitive look of these drawings. It's all too easy to take a workshop, get excited while I am there, and then leave with a case of instant amnesia. I lose the breakthroughs I began. But I am retracing some of my steps, to find the hints and clues to another way.
Do you know Beth Hart? Her music and this song get at this turmoil.
She's worth knowing, especially if you can relate to this: I don't want to survive, I want to live!
