I just read a so-so article about a great 93-year-old sculptor, Milton Hebald, in the L.A. Times.
He's inspiring, loving to get up each morning and create...
I'm looking forward to this weekend, getting a chance to work more on a commission of a drawing of a horse.
On my mind right now, impressed by Somerville artist, John Pinkerton.
Here's the image of a horse which I'm trying to draw:
Drawing all of the dirt, & the leaves on the right side, is a pain. But, the effect I'm going for is to try to elicit a strong contrast between the horse, and the background. I especially like the background in this image because it shoots back to a vanishing point, in perspective. I never thought that dirt and leaves could "behave" in perspective. Does that make sense?
I was encouraged this morning by the kind act of a friend who bought me a cup of hot chocolate.
