stage 2: motion 13 under-drawing / by Philip Tarlow


3:19 PM: today i took the under-drawing for motion 13 further, using colored pencils and mostly crayon, with a little oil pastel as well. this drawing can barely restrain itself from dancing right off the canvas. it's a great example of how sometimes departing from naturalistic colors can actually enhanse the sensation of the actual landscape as it appeared that day last november. as with all the previous under-drawings, it's difficult to bring myself to paint over it, obscuring most of the passages partially or totally. i'm in no rush however, and we'll see how i feel in the morning.
