the newest drawing:
I’m not sure I feel about it. my son actually likes it quite a bit and yet there’s something not quite right with the water.
this is Also my very first picture of a person (in any recent drawing). there is interesting philosophical ground here. I deliberately picked a reference that showed the fishermen as looking elsewhere, as a way to lighten the artistic load; as faces greatly intimidate me.
Yet, its basic human instinct to look for a facial features; and with the guy being the artistic center of the picture- I think (when thinking about it) that overall its bad composition to not show some facial features!
Yes, the “realistic” image was to not show any facial feature; but the better art is IMHO definitely to show facial feature, even if I had to make it up.
again, the philosophy of the image.
realism is but a technique to draw you into the image and frankly I wished I had a little more skill at that.
Onto the Next image!
