I have a mental image of what I want this picture to look like and I haven’t gotten there quite yet. My son bought me black drawing paper and I’m going to try this on a black background and see if that makes the difference. I’ve never drawn on black paper before, so this could be rather interesting.
I have some metallic and fluorescent colors that should show well on a black background. Meanwhile, these two of the four or five sketches are the ones I like best. I’m not quite where I want to be, but I’m getting there.
I know it might seem I’m being overly critical, but that’s not really it. I have an image in my head and I’m trying to create that image as a drawing. These tools may not be the best ones for this purpose, but they are the ones I control best and are easiest for me to work with. For now.
It’s a process, moving along faster than I expected, but not always as quickly as I’d like.
