Drawing/Day 1.2.16

Colored pencil, layered, scratched with X-acto knife, 3.5" square.

I felt impatient working on this, afraid I was wasting time. But I think I need to trust that this is a necessary exercise, doing these daily drawings, that something beneficial will come of it, in the long run. At this point, at least it has me in my studio, working, thinking, experimenting.

The composition was from a 1" square cut from a newspaper photo. Colors were chosen randomly from my considerable stash of colored pencils. There are many layers of different colors, mostly light over dark, before and after the scratching.
