new work and process


"Reading Nook" - Pencil on7 x7in Bristol
I was happily surprised to find a bunch of images on my iPhone of the progress of my newest drawing. I really don't even remember snapping them, but they pretty much show my thought process and the order in which I added each element.

The layout for this image came to me as I drew. I knew I wanted to draw wallpaper, but other than that, my pencil told me what to do. The painting above the fireplace took the most thought. I couldn't think of what to put there since it would only be the bottom half of an image. Finally, after much deliberation I drew the sun setting behind a forest. Human faces are my biggest challenge, so I always save those for last.

I'm really happy with the way this drawing came out. I haven't spent this much time on one piece in a while and it felt good.. to really work on something.
