I’ve been dealing a lot with the use of space -which happens to be one of the themes. I spent a long time adding to the drawing from my last post only to find that I didn’t like the composition and I’ve started over entirely. I don’t mind, though. I learned a couple of valuable lessons.
1) I don’t think about space before placing pencil to paper, which might work for some, but not for me.
2) I still have a hard time filling a relatively small space. I seem to scale down when I draw instead of thinking big.
I do this all the time; spend a lot of time on something only to start over. In my professional career, I plan like crazy so this doesn’t happen. In my artistic career, I dive right in with a vague plan. Interesting.
Here’s to lessons learned and starting over!
