flowers detail

For a while, I was working on two drawings in tandem, a morning flower drawing and a nighttime flower drawing.  Both drawings are 18 x 24 inches large, and the goal was to finish each one incrementally.  The plan worked very well, and I brought both drawings pretty far along — day after day, using this method.

There is an ideal of finish — and neither drawing quite achieved my perfect ideal — oh sob!  I am not perfect!! Who knew?  but then I have learned that sometimes the goal posts shift in ways that the artist must accept.  Sometimes you just have to go with the natural moment and embrace what it offers.

In any case, I loved having the morning and evening drawings.  I attach different kinds of drawing to times of day and it’s a system that works well for me.  It keeps me going with the momentum of the planet turning on its axis.  After all, you gotta go with the flow….
