Mississhippi's Madness

A place to share my creative pursuits

You’d think once would be enough… revisiting old tools

2 Comments

I was back drawing again yesterday.  And I looked at the drawing I started last week and realised that I had drawn it too small. There was too much white space around the drawing. Sure, I could have just cropped the piece, but that isn’t what I wanted. So, I started again.

Grandpa’s Tools 2, willow charcoal. A2 size

I filled the page with the drawing. It is looser and the proportions are much better.  This drawing is just plain better than the first one. Sure there are details to fill in and values to correct, but the bones are there.

Sometimes re-doing something is not a step backwards…

  1. The shadows are just as gorgeous as the tools in this piece – just wonderful!
