|Deb Drawing Me conte crayon and pastel on unknown bumpy paper 10 x 10|
Strokes made from life are less accurate, but often more expressive...and the search for truth more impulsive.
This small drawing was completed in about an hour. Deb, who is usually the perkiest artist in class was not feeling well. While her feeling of malaise was nothing I would ever wish for, I am somewhat satisfied in the truth of this drawing.
Personally, I can never understand why the viewing public seems to prefer the photo-studio smiles of the sitter. What are we really after?
And....Deb was feeling much better the following week.
