I was talking to a friend yesterday about this kind of regular drawing and discussing if it gets easier as you go, if there are any patterns or systematic ways of doing each drawing that makes it easier as you go. But I have found that if I try and emulate a previous success it usually ends with a weak picture or a mess.
With each one of these I feel like I am starting again from scratch, like an adventure, and the ones that work really well are often those where I end with something I wasn’t expecting when I began. They transcend my plan.
I would like to experiment with materials more but usually they are done on the fly when I just have a pencil and a Uniball in my pocket. The onion picture below I did at home so had various different media available.
