803



In Mary's (round 2).

Sorry this is taking so long. Everything I feel like drawing these days involves too many hours per page. I need to develop a less time-consuming style.

Well, it's definitely worth the time. :) I have a small Moley that I'm keeping at home to work in and experiment on ways to keep things loose and fast, as I tend to put in more time than I have.

I feel the same about time consuming style...

it's beautiful though.

The piece is complex, interesting and thought-provoking--beautiful in line and color. A slight departure from some of the others. I like it a lot.

I know what you mean about time-consuming. Even though I may not always be successful in what I attempt, it often takes enormous amounts of time. Sometimes I think I work more slowly than others, but maybe not.

I got another moley at the borders going out of business sale, two of them one with coated yellow pages and one water color to experiment on in hopes of preventing disasters in other people's books.And also, to try things that might come out well and take less time, as roma said.

It's not that I cannot enjoy it without making it into anything--I can and do and did for a while, but in the large version on my third perusal, I saw angels hovering over a church window. their sinewy arms, their flowing gowns, the feathers of their wings.

I always thought these would take me an immense amount of time to do something with this level of detail, and I was a little disheartened because I thought you did them quickly. ;)

Maybe you could maintain the same style but find a way to reduce the amount of page you have to fill in order to feel "done"?

Awesome.

I know what you mean. I can obsess over a page for SEVERAL days. Often I try not to lable that behavior good or bad, but recenly it's been feeling more bad that good.

I admire that someone can actually take that kind of time on something to see it thru. I get antsy if something starts to strain my patience, then rush it & sometimes ruin what would have been very good, had I kept it as slow-paced as when I started :-( I never see that in your art, Anders... I never see a part or section that looks "rushed" or less than perfect. I love that about your art.
