This sketch was made with my bare hands. Literally.
I was driving home from Ruidoso last weekend when I decided to sketch this church along the highway. After I'd done the initial line drawing, I was rummaging around for my paintbrush when I realized I'd left it at home. I was about 50 miles outside of Roswell, so I couldn't exactly go fetch it, but I wasn't about to give up drawing either. As I searched for an alternative, I looked down at my hands and decided to dispense with tools altogether. If 5 year-olds can fingerpaint, by golly, so can I.
This was a surprisingly fun sketch to do. The final result may not be as refined as what I can do with a brush, but the whole point of art is to experiment, so I'm glad I did it. Who knows, maybe I'll work this into my monotyping.
Speaking of monotypes, I'm taking a printing class at the Museum now, so get ready to see some new work soon!
