Spark

This is a bit of a mess, but it was fun playing and pushing paint around. First time I’ve used board too. Bit of faffing around with gessoing it beforehand.

No more excuses

Drawing is foundational

Drawing is foundational – the basis for all art making. If you don’t know how to draw, it’s more difficult to construct shapes and good painting compositions. It’s difficult to communicate your ideas to others. It’s difficult to do any pre-planning drawings or value studies for your paintings.
