Man, a demanding day job makes it so hard to make progress, but I’m trusting in the process and plodding on. I’m really not satisfied with my work this week. I wanted to do more, but never seemed able to, though as I was trying to also make time for writing, I should have realized the drawing might lose for it.

The second and third images are figures from life, and the first and fourth are from photos. I did a bit more with pencil this week, which sadly doesn’t seem to scan well. All of the shoes and boots are my practice drawings toward an image idea I had related to one of my novels, Duckworth, the one I’m currently revising. And last of all is a pencil and watercolor sketch from a statue by Rodin called Eve After the Fall. I like it. I used to do these decades ago when I toyed with studying sculpture–what didn’t I want to study at one point or other?–and it’s very reassuring to see that I still can.

    • It is but most artists have day-jobs, at least for a while, and many writers are professors too, which takes more time than you can imagine looking from the outside. And I don’t have kids….
