Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Thirteen

See T'Hed Twelve for previous progressions... Note: I did Twelve and Thirteen in the same sitting and used most of the same decisions on both, other than placement of the faces... so the texts will be repeated both days. Going forward there should be some interesting changes... stay tuned... Starting with some blue, textured drawing … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Thirteen

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Twelve

See T'Hed Eleven for previous progressions... Starting with some blue, textured drawing stock, I needed to decide course, material, and shapes... as well as volume (how many faces...). I considered what colours play off the blue the best... I wanted a yellow sky and dark (brown) ground so the faces could pop if they remained … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Twelve

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Nine

See T'Hed Eight for previous progressions... Where am I in this one? A dark mood emerging, resolute to move forward with this project... sounds good to me. I used the slate grey paper with gouache on top... I blended the base colours with white to give them more depth and volume. I can't decide if … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Nine

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Seven

See T'Hed Six for previous progressions... As stated yesterday, both Six and Seven reflect my crummy moods of late... Yesterday, I acknowledged some anger and sadness... this one makes me think I am receding into an empty space of icky feelings. I'm shrinking and loosing form (my self) and the happiness (yellow shapes) are all … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Seven

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Six

See T'Hed Five for previous explorations... It's been a couple of days since the last drawing and I'm feeling stressed out! Maybe it's the news of Covid flaring up all over the place, maybe it's that I need to redo some work for University and just don't feel like it, but I know I need … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Six

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Five

See T'Hed Four for previous progressions... As written yesterday: I've shifted to a thick, textured drawing paper. This is a creme coloured paper. I found some tonal Conte & charcoal sticks to play with and was uncertain about the blending, or to keep it messy. Full disclosure: I pulled my back again and it is … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Five

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Four

See T'Hed Three for earlier progressions I've shifted to a thick, textured drawing paper. This is a creme coloured paper. I found some tonal Conte & charcoal sticks to play with and was uncertain about the blending, or to keep it messy. Full disclosure: I pulled my back again and it is making siting uncomfortable. … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Four

She Came In For A Coffee

Would it disappoint you to know that no such person actually walked in for a coffee while I was sitting at Starbucks and drawing? Well, at least not while I was there. I had some time to burn, and a temporary memory loss about no longer liking their macho green tea latte, so I sat … Continue reading She Came In For A Coffee
