It only took a year

Cloud I

Because I haven't scanned my next painting to post yet, I thought I'd share a colored pencil drawing that I recently finished. It is meant to go with this drawing, as part of a developing series. I had started this second drawing for the series almost a year ago. At that time, while I was working on this, I was losing interest in doing this kind of work. I longed to loosen up and let the paint fly. So I did. I set this drawing aside in it's unfinished state and started playing with oils a short time later. The other day I unearthed this drawing, still in it's half completed state, and thought I really should finish it. After playing with paint for so long now, I have finally come around to thinking about drawing again. Completing this piece seemed as good a place to start as any. There is a lesson here, I am sure of it.

*The first drawing in this series, Wave I, is available as fine art prints from ImageKind.

I'm impressed that you can pick up a piece again after so long - I am never able to do that.

I have to laugh, I also have taken a hiatus from CPs and in the last few weeks have picked them up again and fallen in love all over again!

Wow! A year... =) That's really something! I have some other sketches that I haven't touched for longer than a year too...and they definitely need some work there ^^
I love the shapes, the colors and the depth of the clouds... after all, the sky is what I love staring at the most when I have absolutely nothing to do.

You do wonderful work in every medium you decide to use!

I'd say the lesson is to go with your heart and work in one medium and then another as your feelings dictate and that way you'll feel fresh and alive rather than bored and stagnant. Very pretty clouds.
