Throughout my career as an artist, there have been some pieces that for one reason or another, I just never completed. Thinking on it recently, and looking over some of these pieces put by the wayside, I see value in them. I learned some things from them, some nuance, how I felt a line here or there was good the way I handled it in that particular instance. And even though at the time I chose not to complete them, they don’t look bad, in their unfinished, almost forgotten way. So here, I give you; “From The Sketchbook Undone.”
Just a couple of parrots, from a class I taught.
She looks like a “Cassandra”.
I actually did finish this one, but I kind of like it unfinished as well.
I had all intentions of colorizing this…
A “study” I may someday paint, or not…
I would still like to complete the above sketch. It’s a sweet moment of my younger daughter and one of my grand daughters, playing with Faerie wings at a local farm where they had put out things for the kids to play with. They had set up doors with plants and flowers on them in a small grassy area. It’s a sweet memory, and I know it would make a nice painting. But again, I still like the unfinished sketch, where I feel I had captured the moment well, and was happy with the results.
And just a guy on his bike, heheh
I hope you enjoyed this, another peek into my sketchbooks. Have a great week, see you next time!
