As I worked steadily on Thursday’s Drawing, I was amazed to realize that this week is almost over. The floral painting that I’ve been working on, well I don’t know if it will ever see the light of day ~ yep, it’s been that interesting.
Today the portion of the fabric that’s wrapped around her upper body was started. This is an interesting part of the fabric because it’s draped side-ways, but the fabric fibers flow downward ~ so the foundation was drawn and then when the back and side are worked on the flow of fabric and fibers will become more clear.
I think of the heaviness of the fabric as it hangs off her body and wonder how she manages the burden of the load – it becomes a part of her. She doesn’t notice as she hangs her head in sorrow.
