Wipeout!Posted: January 5, 2014
It’s always more interesting for me to post a sketch when there’s a story to accompany it, and the story I have to tell with this sketch is that I painted it with a fractured wrist. Of course I didn’t realize it was fractured at the time (from slipping on an icy trail while walking the dog!) because the pain only really started later in the day. So this was done in the time between the fall and the time the cast went on, when there was not much discomfort. It doesn’t seem to be a very good start to the year (sketching in the deep freeze, sketching with a cast on) but who knows what it may lead to. Possibly a series of very loose sketches because the only brushes I can hold are the big ones!
