I've been on a bit of a break for the last month or so. I spent my time focusing on other things, while those things may be worth while I'm not sure they are of as much value to me as making paintings and drawings so I've decided to get back to the drawing board and easel. To ease my way back in I decided to renew my daily charcoal sketching habit. I do my 15-20 minute charcoal sketch right after showering and dressing, at least I always intend to. I do miss some days but do make it to the easel to sketch most days. Here are the sketches I did this last week.
This one is based on a photograph I took somewhere along the South Fork of the Ogden River. I'm currently working on a painting based on this sketch.
