I’m going back to the leaf drawings I enjoyed doing so much, but combining them with stones. I’ve been working on this drawing, Prismacolors over Caran D’Ache Supracolor washes, done on Bristol Board Vellum. I have a couple of new ideas to explore, including a triptych. While this drawing is not complete yet, there is enough here to share. The stone needs more development, as well as many areas of the leaves and shadows.
I am excited to be heading off to Strasbourg and Paris in a few hours. We will be visiting friends in both cities, and I am very eager to see friend and colleague Elizabeth Patterson’s current exhibition of Colored Pencil drawings in Paris at the Galerie Louis Carre. It will also be a great opportunity for my son, who has been studying french for four years, to hear and practice the language. And, to eat!!! Oh, and I suppose to take in some art…..Thanks for reading, and a bientot!
