I saw this fellow practicing his "tightrope walking" one morning in the park and he generously let me take pics of him to paint from.
I really enjoy doing these pencil drawings as they give me a chance to focus on the subject without being concerned so much about the background/setting as I am with the paintings. Maybe I don't have to be!! Anyway, though, they give me a different way of looking at the subject. I have such a tendency to have to put everything in (context, background) and I like the way space and shape play off each other in these simpler drawings. It would be a challenge to paint that way! I suppose I could try it. . . .?
