experiment

2 from the Art League today. Charcoal on sketchpad 9×12″

First one was vine charcoal in 15 min. Second one was vine charcoal 25 min then compressed charcoal pencil 25 min.

I am new to charcoal and learned something about the materials.

When I did commercial art I rarely experimented with materials I did not know. It was too risky. Its nice to be learning again.

I can sometimes get drawn into the controversy, the election, the agenda, the media, the hoopla, the spectacle, the problems of the world. These are not my problems. I did not create them nor am I very likely to solve them merely with my opinion.

I need to shut out the noise and do my work.
