Form in Repose

I’ve decided to start another long term painting. Lately my motivation has been lacking and I hope this will bring back some energy to spend at least 2 hours a day on art.

I wanted the drawing to be very accurate so I started with graphite rather than oil. When I compare my weeks of drawing with a brush versus pencil I have to say that I prefer the latter more. Especially with these smaller paintings, I just can’t get enough detail in many areas of the figure with a brush.

The good news is that I spent two hours on this today. I haven’t spent 2 hours in one day on art at my home in several weeks.

  1. Wow, I didn’t realize your motivation was waning like that. Good idea to jump back into a motivating mode. Whatever keeps you in a good frame of mind.
