Disorder

I tried painting from my car today (two failed attempts) but the rain was coming down too hard and I was surrounded by grey. Hard to find any beauty at all in that. I still had an itch to draw so I came home and instead of cleaning the mess on the countertop I drew it. Last year I discovered the pleasure of drawing with a soft pencil on the paper in the hand•book journal sketchbook. The pencil glides so softly on that paper that there is a certain enjoyment in the act of drawing itself even if you are drawing a mess like this.

    Nice abstract quality to this drawing. The bits of dark value help too.

    Always more fun to sketch a mess than to clean it up! 🙂

    Hi Shari, I know it’s cold in Montreal but I thought this fact might make you feel warmer: I was looking at a map this evening and I noticed that Montreal is actually south of Portland, Oregon.
