Between Love and Fear
I have been happily back to drawing!
So what’s the title about?
I love to draw… in fact I adore working in pencil! (and own several sketch books that attest to that fact…)
Yet I often feel clumsy after I set the graphite down. Reverting to a coward, I find myself unwilling to sacrifice hours of effort to my recycling bin.
But to stop there, as I am wont to do, cheats myself of growth.
I was gifted this beautifulÂ light table, so methinks I’ll be able to duplicate work and practice until perfection? That is part of my plans/goals, which I will get into shortly.
I started drawing recently and youÂ may have missed the post about my red dragon, because it would seem I still don’t know my way around WordPress and made it disappear, an error since rectified. ::blushes::
I am pleased that I’ve made considerable progress since then, and have split my efforts between two projects.
First, there is the accordion book above (also called a leporello or a concertina book), which I plan on finishing in pencil.
My second project involves a series of drawings I promised in my last update.
Further inspired by my leporello, I’ve chosen a few scenes to elaborate with andÂ those I will draw in colour. Including my red dragon, I will have at least 5 new works, which is… small, but important. I wondered if I should finally open my Patreon account, butÂ it needs artwork to draw people in, and I don’t even have a banner. Maybe that can beÂ another concurrent project ::laughs::
Yesterday, we went to see Little Shop of HorrorsÂ performed at the Rainbow Stage.
Dragonet laughed and enjoyed the performance, while ‘Phee had to be assured that none of the actors had really been eaten. Are we done with the theatre for now? Not necessarily, but ‘Phee and I had difficulties with the outdoor seating, so I might opt for an indoor performance and plush seats next time. ::laughs again::
They are enjoying the freedom of the public wading pool nearby, so I think summer holidays are officially off to a good start!
And with that, I shall bid you adieu for now <3
