So, this year I’ve been more disciplined than ever. Surprisingly, then, when I counted how many paintings I had made, I had to stop counting at seven. Why is that? Well, I’ve been trying to figure that out, and I figured that as I do I could post about where my painting time has gone. Consequently, this post full of okay-ish sketches.
I’ve tried to make a habit of going to the art museum with my spare time and sketching the work of great masters. This has happened….sometimes. It’s taken a little chunk out of my time painting, but also it’s helped me improve a lot this year in my fundamentals. It’s given me a reference point for the stuff I’m trying to do different, and ideas about how to pattern my work just a little more off of people who really knew what they were doing. Here are some sketches. Extra points if anyone can name what paintings they’re from.
