"Backtracking..."


...in an attempt to catch up...
with all my summer journal drawings
so
I am ready for new art
for the holidays!
This was drawn "ink straight in"...lead free...
while awaiting an
optometry appointment this summer back in Illinois.
This was my view
from where I was seated in the waiting room.
I actually added watercolor just about a week later...
then
flipped it into the "negative" with Microsoft Digital Editor
a few seconds ago
and finally posted it just now...
almost 4 months
later.
Backtracking...at its finest!

"Never forget
the power of silence,
that massively disconcerting pause
which
goes on and on
and may at last induce an opponent
to babble and backtrack
nervously."
~Lance Morrow

Both the original and negative version look great! I'm forever playing catch up (I have pages from over a year ago I'm still determined to do!!), better late than never I say!

Both are beautiful! I did a little backtracking this week, a sketch done a few weeks ago that just got posted yesterday. Backtracking at it's finest
