Back to Dinghy duty....(Work in progress)
I'm back in my studio in the basement, slapping some oils on a small Dinghy painting. I swear there is more to me than Dinghy's but I'm really enjoying painting them right now...I swear!
I subscribe to Robert Genns twice weekly letter for artist and he has mentioned many times the benefits of exploring a single theme over the course of several paintings. I now understand the benefits of what he is talking about. I think each Dinghy has progressed in my sketches and paintings.
My freshman year in art school we had a drawing class where we drew crumpled up brown paper bags for the entire semester. My understanding is finally sinking in right now.
Onward to my dinghy....
