Focus is something I've always struggled with in art. I had another episode of "focus-strugglitis" this week. I started the week with my usual charcoal landscape sketching and then suddenly veered away to do some pen and watercolor sketching of cars and trucks and today after a disastrous start to a pen sketch I went back to the charcoal. Did I return to charcoal solely due to failure and frustration? No, I don't think so, or at least not entirely. I think I was really just in the mood for charcoal sketching and that's one reason the pen sketch didn't go as planned. However, a pro artist should be able to overcome "moods" and distractions right? Maybe it's just human nature to wander, but I also think I need to work on this and gain some focus.
Here are some charcoal sketches made since my last post.
