I have quite a few compositional sketches in my studio sketchbook. Some feel like paintings, some feel like drawings. I want this new series to have both.
I began the drawing on the table looking out the window. I have only recently moved the table there as I usually draw on my drawing table or on the easel. It is comfy sitting down.
After a few days the drawing wasn't going well. It seemed stale. I felt very discouraged.
Today I realized that it might have to do with drawing at the table. When I put it up on my easel, I saw that the proportions were out. Because I was able to step back from the drawing, I could better see what was off.
