the community o' artists!
I did a painting last night. 8" x 10" acrylic on canvas. Not sure how I feel about it. I used the raw, unprimed side of the canvas because I like the texture but maybe it's not the best thing to do. Plus, the painting, which is from a photo that I took yesterday morning around 8am is kind of dark and no amount of fooling around with it in Photoshop neutralizes the harshness of the scanner. When I laid down in bed I had to kick out the jams and freestyle a sketch of an old lady that popped into my mind yesterday. I drew her as I saw her (in my mind). I don't know what it means. I had to draw her, so I did, then got out of bed (11:30pm) and fired up the computer and scanner so I could post it. Sometimes I see things (mostly people) and I feel compelled to draw them. Last week I was out with a friend (female) at a business expo. I saw this beautiful woman behind a booth. Most guys would look at her and think: "I gotta do her." All I thought about and told my friend was: "I want to draw her face, it's perfect." I could not even tell you anything about her body because I was captivated by her face.|
