Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Some life sketches

I haven't been posting much, but I've been browsing through/admiring the works here every now and then. It's been a very challenging year, trying my best to not ask myself this question: "What's the point?"

So, here are some of my attempts, trying to find myself again in all the 'unsuspecting strangers'.

Re: Some life skethes

The point is to keep on enjoying yourself as much as possible and produce more work like this. These are terrific sketches. Your line is incisive. It picks out the forms and expressions with great economy. Your tone drawings in pen or pencil render the light on the faces beautifully and convey the character of your subjects in a clear, unfussy way.
We want more! More drawing, more posts!

Re: Some life skethes

I echo Harry's comments Constance. Your drawings are a real joy. I'm sorry you've had a bad year but art is a way through

The more developed ones (3rd ink and the last one) are wonderful. That is not that I don't appreciate the others, just those seem to capture more emotion. Many thanks for sharing Constance.

Re: Some life skethes

Beautiful works- as always. You have such a good eye!
We all have times when we question the reasons- and I agree- art is a way through!
so I am sending you some encouragement to keep doing what you do so well!

"What's the point?"
For me learning anything is an exercise in self improvement, making a better version of myself. It doesn't hurt to re-evaluate oneself. Are there other things you can improve yourself on better than art?

The first drawing is the best one where you have mapped out his face with lines.

Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Re: Some life sketches

Thank you so much Joe, Nathan, Bethany and Bill.

I've already asked myself many times, the question Bill raised. I've yet to find any other answers (and I've been actively immersing myself in different activies/new adventures/volunteering) apart from ART.

But I've yet to find my 'place' in art. I'm sorry, this is not the place to share all these

Midlife crisis I suppose

Constance-

Iíve spent time pondering that question myself. For me itís mostly entertainment but itís also really good therapy. It allows one to get outside of their own head for a bit. So I guess Iíd say to anyone- if you donít enjoy it, go find something else. Life is short. Having said that- your work has been a gift to all of us. I hope you enjoy making it and keep posting. As Harry says... We want more!

-Earl

Thank you so much Earl. Really appreciate it. There's really nothing else I'd rather do than making art.
