4th entry for June 3, 2014

These are the final part of the day, done with water-soluble pencils and water-soluble graphite washes on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Montval watercolour paper. Fan gone, focus was back in a good way and I'm fairly happy with these.
My working process these days has an oft-frustrating but apparently productive interplay; pure line drawings that frustrate and challenge focus, then release into looser tonal wash drawings with some residual improved focus and control.
This reminds me of the balsa-wood rubber-band powered airplanes I had as a kid; wind them up a lot and then let them fly...
