Does this ever happen to you?
You draw something you are really happy about and then you think but the nose is not quite right so you add one or more lines of ink and it's RUINED?
Can you see the white-out (band aid) I applied here?
I tried as best I knew how to correct an ink drawing and am happy again, or happier...but
please inner muse KNOW WHEN TO STOP!!!!
I drew this gal from the cover of a knitting book I got last weekend
in this elegant over-sized cabled caplet.
Now wondering if I am brave enough to try and actually knit it!
I went to Jalisco's today
for lunch and there was only this one lone customer eating at the counter
when I arrived. So I sat facing the counter, a new direction for me there
and drew this in 20 minutes!
My new friend, Carlos, who is the owner's son and an artist in his own right, greeted me warmly and as there wasn't much work to do yet came to chat a bit. He asked to see what I was doing and then went on to look at all the drawings in my book. He was I believe a bit amazed at how quickly I worked, he said as much; and he was generous with his praise of my drawings. Thank you Carlos. Carlos has a web site here: www.CarlosAnimates.com. Check him and his work out! He is a very talented young man, artist, actor, animator. Go see!!! You can tell him I sent you!
And finally this is the view out a window in our living room I drew yesterday late afternoon. A winter scene with bare branches reaching up to a blue gray cloudy sky. But you can't tell that as it's all in black ink only!
What's it like where you are?
