Giuseppe and Bean were hanging together on the cabinet, waiting for something to happen. I wasn’t doing anything, not sure what they were expecting. In the end, I think they had a nap. That wasn’t bad for a summer afternoon.

I’m trying some of the same styles I use in in hard pastels. I can blend a little bit more in these and I like the softer coverage and feathered edges on the green and blue. We’ll see where I take it—if only I hadn’t been so distracted by their movements and started with one face and ended with another…they move all the time and usually it doesn’t bother me, I fill my eyes with my first vision of them and work as quickly as possible from that, but not when I’m distracted. Next time, I’ll move on to Cubism.

What was I sketching a year ago today?
