I love to draw.  Sometimes I get into the painting zone, simply because painting takes longer, is more demanding of my time and I wake up thinking, “I’ve got to get to that painting…” But drawing is still the foundation.  One of my mentors told me that good paintings come from good drawings.  It’s hard to “fix it in the mix” if you don’t have the armbiture of a good drawing underneath.  It was great to return to some drawing exercises yesterday, if for nothing else to have the immediate joy of the quick draw.  Self-Portrait in conte on paper.  And a sketch of the next painting, crayon on paper (you’ll have to wait to see it in color).  ~S
