I want to have something substantial I can show for day 50 of #StayHome, but I don’t. It has, however often crossed my mind that the reason I don’t like to work from photos, even my own, is that the work never stays as loose and fresh as I want it to. So I’m going to try and achieve that with my sketches from my own photos.
This over-the-top piece is a result of trying to hard to be loose , but still, it’s something I want to work towards. When the photos are my own, the storytelling is my own too, making it a more personal point of view.
Here is the piece in reverse order of how I sketched it.
It would’ve been a stronger sketch if I stopped one step before I did, don’t you think?
