Friday Figures-balance sheet

Leaning back to consider the situation, or perhaps work out a kink in the lumbar. Love this gesture. 4 minute pose, Stillman & Birn Gamma Series 8 1/2" x 11" hardbound sketchbook. Drawn in a thunderstorm.
Leaning back to size things up, or just work out a kink in the lumbar. Loved this off-balance gesture. 4 minute pose. Stillman & Birn Gamma Series 8 1/2″ x 11″ hardbound sketchbook. Sketched in a thunderstorm.
Awkward+ winsome= beautiful. 4 minute pose. Stillman & Birn Gamma Series 8 1/2" x 11" hardbound sketchbook.
Awkward+ winsome= beautiful sprawl. 4 minute pose. Stillman & Birn Gamma Series 8 1/2″ x 11″ hardbound sketchbook.

I just ordered a few more of these nice sketchbooks, a sign that I’m drawing nearly enough. But how much is enough drawing?

Happy Friday.

    As many artists have said there is never too much drawing for an artist! I was reminded of this recently reading the recent Bob Kuhn book.But it only reminded me of how many times I’ve read it elsewhere.

    I’ve spent the last 10 days or so using Stillman and Birn Gamma and Delta sketchbooks, more for small paintings using Caran d’Ache Neocolor II water-soluble crayons than standalone drawings. Even with the thinner Gamma paper it’s amazing how much you can work the paper, with wash after wash, without having to call it quits!

    Ken- sounds like you’re having fun with the S&B; my favorite turns out to be Alpha Series but I’m liking the Gamma, too. Keep up the good work and thanks for the comment!
