male figure sketching and sumi ink drawing

I'm continuing to delve into figure sketching. The weather has been wonderful and keeps me outside most days, so this past week I only converted one sketch to a sumi ink drawing which is titled, Abstract Figure IV, May 2017.

The weather is beckoning me outside again, so I'm off to jog in the woods.

Figures, Journal pages and sketchbook

I am getting back to figure drawing again. The above gesture drawing was inspired by a vintage photo. I drew the figure using a pearl ex metallic and gum arabic mixed with water and a bit of white watercolor. The background is red acrylic paint.

Without haste, but without rest.

Sometimes sketches are overlaid upon each other as I warm-up and work out ideas. Even when it feels like I'm not moving forward, I remind myself that nothing is wasted. Every mark is a move forward.

It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance... and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process.
Henry James
