Today I felt grounded at Jalisco's for lunch and art making and took exactly 20 minutes over chips, guacamole and one fish taco to draw these "Three Women".
The first woman, Miss Pony Tail, on the right was my first model and I would have drawn her partner but the woman on her left came in and sat directly behind Miss Pony Tail thus obscuring my view of her and her friend. So rather than start over I put the second woman in the chair with her coat thrown over the back, as if she were sitting next to Miss Pony Tail. I did add woman #3 with dark curly hair and bright red sweater sitting across from and facing woman #2. I felt very satisfied with this drawing after having a difficult time the day before...
a very successful feeling art day drawing portraits and other art posted one post below this one; after which I felt depleted of creative energy 110%. Does this ever happen to you? I had a really good creative rush of painting after painting gushing out over pages of watercolor papers and then it was as if the breaks went on, the river dried up and I could not draw a thing.
After experiencing these difficult feelings of abject frustration I finally sat in the late evening doing nothing for some time, watching banal meaningless TV until I finally got out my paints and pads and doodled shapes and filled them in in this stained glass look below:
"Three Women" done at Jalisco's! Whew. An interesting array of feelings we creative folks go through over time.
Can you relate to this?
