VIEW IN MY ROOM
Drawing: Graphite, Pen and Ink on Paper.
The technique I use to help stop me from overworking my figurative art is to approach its construction by building it up in unified levels or layers. The first layer being a quick intuitive gesture to encompass the essence of the whole pose. There is a tendency to spend more time, give more attention, to detailed features like the face, the hands, and the feet. I think a balanced and harmonious image avoids those temptations. After the completion of each additional progressive layer, and before I apply the next one, there is an imperceptible moment where I ask myself, “is this it, have I got it”? If the answer is yes, it's time to move onto the next one.
