I am over run with ideas for new paintings and drawings. Its an odd sensation, making me want to furiously put it all down on paper before the ideas disappear or the urge leaves, as we know it can do. But I have other things to do first, such as finalizing pieces for our upcoming exhibition and completing a few pieces in progress before I dive into the ideas.
I will put down some thumbnail sketches however so I'll have something concrete to go back to later and the ideas aren't lost in day to day life.
Here is an update on the drawing of the coyote that I started in pastel. Its coming on slowly and I'm in no rush. Without the snout built up the face looks too broad,but that should rectify itself as the shading becomes apparent. I always love how pieces start to move forward out of the paper.
