Re-thinking, reworking, crow drawing

Crow_sketch15x15detail

Kneaded gum erasers make life better. They do.

The more I looked at it, the more misgivings I had about this drawing. The hatching was too disconnected from the form, forced and poorly integrated. Having reworked it several times, I’ve decided to move on. Kneaded gum eraser, thanks.

Return to Grand Manan

I’ve recently returned from my annual fall pilgrimage to Grand Manan Island. The shoreline is amazing, the hiking is wonderful and uncrowded.  I look forward to working up the ideas that I collected while up there into paintings.
