I'm calling this drawing done but I'm not happy with it at all. Its one of those that will be relegated to the 'bin drawer' where images that don't measure up to expectation go. I don't throw out bad drawings. Sometimes I try to revitalize them at a later date or I review them months or years later to gauge progress and remind myself of past faux pas.
I'll put it down to a variety of environmental effects that came together to ensure that this didn't work to the level that I wanted.
- A new support - I used Colourfix for this and it was the first time I truly used it to build an image. I need more practice on the surface and how it accepts coloured pencil
- A hectic schedule - I've been trying to fit this into snatched moments here and there without having a block of serious time to sit down with it.
- Self doubt - I'm still working my way out of a serious lack of inspiration and have found it difficult to get involved in any piece in any medium for the last couple of weeks.
- Bad photography - I've found it is near impossible to get a good photo of this piece. The light at either end of my work day is impossible and today was dark and damp so the light didn't improve a lot.
