Promise 43: Eye No. 8



Today started as a very difficult sketching day--I just couldn't figure out why it was so hard. Then I realized I'd failed to draw the scaffolding lines on which the sketch is based...the foundation of the drawing as Harold Speed calls it. After establishing the support, the drawing came much easier, though there are a lot of corrections still to be made.

I read somewhere (wish I could remember where now), that drawing or painting is a series of constant and tiny corrections. How true. For me anyway. See you tomorrow.
