Do you know the Marmite slogan .... Love it or Hate it?? Well I'm having a Marmite experience with the Gorilla drawing. As it begins to take on a life of its own now I have to keep at it to see how it will evolve, I'm the artist and I haven't got a clue!
This morning I was going to bin it, this afternoon I swear it winked at me, and it has a stay of execution. I going to take a break from it and see how I feel after another day or so .... also, this time I photographed it from a distance, which is of course how we normally view art. Working so close to it and seeing it 'warts n all' isn't good
This morning's photo - there are so many colours in this, but they will tone down as the top layer of fine hairs is added
and this afternoon, with a little more distance.
I've made a start on a much smaller coloured pencil work - just an experiment really to see how I cope with drawing the sea/waves ... I need to get out of my comfort zone and try different things.
OK ... we're off to a family birthday barbecue tomorrow so fingers crossed the rain will disappear (as promised) and we get a nice sunny day.
ps: I LOVE Marmite - do you?
