Boiling Water

I worked on a new drawing and revisited a previous one today. I think because I have a short attention span that it’s rare for me to go back and rework a drawing. Today I was thinking a lot about making a stronger transition from the water into the open space in the upper section of these drawings. The transition in this drawing seemed too abrupt, so I worked on making it more gradual and atmospheric.

In the new drawing I started thinking about the water as almost having an allergic reaction to the presence of the figure. There’s a sense of the water boiling where the figure makes physical contact with the water, as well as the water dissipating as it moves upwards.  I think this is an odd mixture of images, considering that the gesture of the figure indicates their discomfort from being too cold.
