|Eglise Saint Gervais, Marais, Paris|
flew in from Rome to discuss my project and work
thus far. It was extremely helpful, but darn it, he
discovered my achilles heal so quickly! He is
rightly encouraging me to paint with little or no
line work, to willingly cross over and out of my
comfort zone and put my pencil aside. This is
why I am here, afterall.
So off we went, sketchbooks in hand, to the
nearby Eglise Saint Gervais, where we sat in
the dark church (it was raining again outside,
and cold) and both sketched with paint. Here I
attemped a nearly pencil-less sketch.
He is right, I need to work on this in the search
for my artistic self, so more of this to come.
I wish I could channel John Singer Sargent...
