Just to pick up on a theme that seems current. Mistakes. ( Thanks Theresa )
I am very chuffed with this sketch, but even the most forgiving will admit that it starts off in one scale ( at the back of his skull ) and ends up in a completely different one ( his jacket shoulder ) And the two have no hope of ever meeting.
And does it matter ? I'm not bothered, in fact I am delighted by it. It weights the drawing to the bottom of the page. And your eye more than compensates. It's how we see the world. We look at it bit by bit, the back of the head, the brow, the nose, the chin, the neck, the collar, the shoulder. Who's to say that our perspective never changes along the way. Although we see the world as one, we only focus on it a bit at a time. I'm just doing the same here.
Hmmm. I could maybe write a whole dissertation on the nature and purpose of sight as interpreted by artists.
If I didn't have to go and eat toast.
