11:47 AM: if i could get to work by 10:30, I'd get a lot more done! lets give that a try tomorrow, shall we?
i opened a book of van gogh drawings from an exhibition we visited at the met in 2005. here's an example of one, rocks and trees, drawn in province, july 6-12, 1888. pay careful attention to the variety, livliness and absolute necessity of each of his marks. this is genius.
i'm about to embark upon a new under-drawing, this one based upon a photo i shot october 15, 2017.
