Mother……, son of a …….

I’ve started the sketch of “Scraggly Weed”. This is the 5×7 version, and the wall, of course is all off. It will be corrected in the final version.

What I do have to do to make the butterflies stand out, is what is called “negative drawing”. You do the front first, and work around that to fill in the background drawing. If I were a more positive person, I suppose I would say it’s a challenge. But since I’m not, I’ll tell you it’s a pain in the ass. Ah, what I go through for my art.

  1. Did Picasso worry that a wall was off? Did Dali care if the physical structure in a painting could never be replicated in a practical manner? Did van Gogh ever wonder if the stars were out of proportion? Well, maybe they did …

    1. Good point, Greg. But I am not Picasso, Dali or Van Gogh.
