How is it that time moves so quickly? My half-hour came and went today in a flash, but was able to make good progress and am ready for stage 2.
Today’s drawing (12×9, Strathmore Vellum Paper) time saw the entire bottom foreground portion of the fabric completed using 4H, 2H, HB, B, 2B and 3B, at least for now as touchups will happen throughout.
I was really feeling the ebb n’ flow of the heavy fabric, silky-smooth and the wear n’ tear by weather elements – so it is we’ll keep the raw and naturally produced patina covering her cement skin. The patina adds to her character, as many have stated. Oh the emotion – the position, tears and hands, each keep her in prayer – how deeply she must feel.
