I was away from the studio for a few days, so last night was the first time in a while that I stepped into the studio. I finished up the rest of the etching ink on this drawing seen above, and things started to feel more resolved. I think it will need another pass with the etching ink to tone down some of the whites, but I’m putting it aside so it can dry, and also so I can come back to it with a set of fresh eyes.
A number of transitions are coming up: the semester is ending in just a few weeks, and I’m looking forward to January and February when I don’t teach. I’ll be teaching three days a week in the spring semester, which is going to be tough on my studio practice, so I’ll have to prepare myself for that.
