Passion and Poetry

The other night I was in a semi-awake dream place and four words were rolling around in my mind - Passion. Poetry. Color. Line. They all have a relationship to my art but it wasn't until I was sketching this morning that they pulled together for me. The color is the passion. Bold, loose and free. The line is the poetry. Each stroke, shade, smudge, variation in weight have meaning. I love it.

Life Drawing

I just started drawing and painting on Tuesday nights in Rockland with a Life Drawing Group. The figure is one of my weaknesses so I really want to work on this area. Most of the people in this group work pretty large. I may try that next week but for the longer poses I really want to keep with watercolor. I'm working in a 9x12 Strathmore Visual Journal..
