Seriously, each non commissioned drawing takes me between 80-120 hours (maybe more).
Translated: weeks of work.
The one question that I have
Am I able to produce a wee bit quality in one day?
Can I "perform" without all the time and detail and work and rework and endless thought?
Can I get to the important nitty gritty and feel pleased with the result?
Can I quieten the nagging "you -can-you-only-draw-slowly-and un-sponteneously" voice?
Yes, yes, yes and YES!
Here's the proof: Snaffles.
Upping the anti (no comfort zone for me!), I used new paper (Fabriano), a new medium (Nitram Charcoal) and a new time frame (one day i.e: 6 hours drawing time).
Drank two coffees, pumped up the volume and got cracking...
Super chuffed with the result!
Snaffles is a drawing that won't win any shows or awards but ,to me, it means the world 'cause it simply screams: I CAN!
