I had my second session on this first drawing last night. Things are starting to feel more substantial now that I’ve knocked in more of the other figures. I’ll finish this first pass of etching ink, let the piece dry, and then start building up more layers of figures on top.
I have to keep reminding myself to have patience with these pieces. Because of the large scale of the drawings, my pace is much slower than what I’m accustomed to. After so many months of just sketching and thinking, I’m aching for the satisfaction of finishing a drawing. I think I will feel better once I have a few completed pieces.
