Today I was able to get an early start in the studio and decided to devote the first 1/2 hour to Thursdays drawing instead of waiting until the end of the day.
For the latest session on Sorrow, I went to work on the lower left-hand corner of the fabric, being mindful that while this drawing is of a statue, there still remains a certain look to achieve in order for the viewer to visualize that the subject is smooth-flowing fabric. The surface is Strathmore Vellum, using 4H, 2H, HB, B and 2B.
Sorrow is such a powerful word to describe emotion, I believe it comes from deep within the gut – perhaps because sorrow leaves its imprints on our soul. I felt this emotional pull the moment I laid eyes on the image . . . ah well, to be continued another day.
