Back to the pencils
I'm finding a pattern for when inspiration drops off. Its usually when I've spent a lot of time painting and not enough time drawing. Drawing has always been my first love and it was what I was schooled in years ago. Traditional, representational drawing. And its my fall back or comfort zone when the going gets tough.
So while other ideas brew in my head for more paintings I pulled out some coloured pencils and started a self portrait. This is a couple of hours worth on Stonehenge or Bainsbridge drawing paper. I'm not quite sure which - Bainsbridge I believe, as I took it from a sheet lying in the stash that wasn't categorized. Its about 9 x 12.
So until the muse comes backs with paints in hand, you're stuck with me and my pencils.
