...Or at least that's what people who see them call them. I don't really call them anything except maybe "super-fast sketches" or "blind sketches" or "semi-blind sketches" (or "super-fast semi-blind sketches"). They are each about 6" x 6" and the way I do these is literally as fast as humanly possible, as fast as the pen can move. I only allow myself to look at my paper a couple of times, so there are plenty of failures, but the ones that turn out have some ineffable, transcendent quality that I love. Each one probably takes about a minute or two. (I also do some that I do totally "blind," i.e., I don't look at the paper at all, only the subject: contour drawing.) I'll try to find some of those too. These are all of The Husband.
These are pretty old but I need something to show you all...I have so many large abstract oils in progress, but none getting done. I worked for two hours last night and started two more...but haven't finished a single one yet. Eventually, I'll have quite a few to show. In the meantime, I'll keep digging up stuff I haven't posted before.
