Back Into My Chamber of Reflection

Today I finally managed to get back into my study for the first time properly in about three weeks due to one thing after another and circumstances beyond my control; anyway today was back to work and therefore it was set to be a good day.

I made myself a large coffee, sharpened up my sanguine pencil and started making marks on paper; a relief indeed after three weeks of frustration and eagerness to get stuff done. I didn’t create anything great, I just sketched a few figures and done some anatomical stuff; nothing went the way I wanted it to today but it still felt good to get back to it. In fact, it’s amazing how much one’s drawing can suffer after a while without doing it.

Moving on, I’m going to start a small project the content of which I’m not sure yet; this time I’m going to go for a drawing rather than a painting and whether it will be in graphite or ink yet I don’t know, that will depend on the subject matter and how I wish to portray it.

So for now, I’m going to think about what story I want to depict and then I’ll get some research done and get straight to it, by next week I will know what I’m doing and that will be the subject of next week’s post.

Well I look forward to posting again next week with a more informative post and not the ramblings of an artist who broke two pencils in one day…

As July Ends…

“Remember tonight… For it is the beginning of always.” – Dante Alighieri

Just a short post to say thank you really, to all those who have viewed my site, followed my blog and commented on my posts. July has been the first month of me really getting into the idea of blogging and keeping a regular schedule with my posts.

As July ends I have reflected upon this past month and I am pleasantly surprised by what has been achieved in such a short amount of time.

This is how I intend to move forward, keeping to my schedule of posts and always having an Art Project going on as I currently have; I hope to keep meeting new people, having interesting debates and conversations and reading the posts of others.

Thanks again,

JGlover
