"It is a time of tons of verbiage, activity, and consumption.... But I do know that many who are driven to this life are desperately searching for those pockets of silence where they can root and grow. We must all hope that they find them."
Mark Rothko, 1969
Well its been awhile. Life has been getting in the way of drawing lately, but I finally finished this study based on a large oil painting by Sargent that he did in 1880 while he was in North Africa. The study is about 9x12, charcoal and white pastel on Canson toned paper. Unfortunately, I'm still limited to my cell phone camera, so its a tad blurry.
