So, I have spent the last year and a half drawing, but once my paints got shipped from CA last month, the paints are out and I am drawing with paint.
I think you guys know how I feel about my sketchbooks since you probably feel the same way about your own. They are precious little diaries filled with beautiful drawings, crude and silly doodles, and private notes. A sketchbook holds no real value for anyone but yourself.
All of the paintings you see above exist in one of my sketchbooks. As I try to re-create the drawings in oil paint, it becomes a new challenge in mark-making and they end up taking on their own life separate from the original drawing.
These guys are pretty small since I don't have much space, but it works for now. We'll see what comes of this new work...
