At first, I gave myself half an hour to draw something quickly on a piece of cardboard with black, white, and clear oil stocks. Good, bad – it didn’t matter. Just make an image, and go quickly.
But then, I uncovered a box of colored oil sticks. I assumed they would be dried out to the core – I’ve had the sticks since art school. Art school happened in the 90s. To my pleasant surprise – the sticks had not dried out (completely). The up-to-half-an-hour-drawing has changed to up-to-half-an-hour-black-and-white-drawing, and then, add color if I wish.
I’m trying to keep the speed in order to stay loose. The first half hour or less rule remains – but after that – well – the color changed everything.
Black, white, bronze, ochre.
